De La Cancela, Victor; Martinez, Iris Zavala
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v5 n3 p251-74 Sep 1983
Identifies limitations of culturalist perspective often advocated by Latino mental health workers outlines folk healing practices they favor. Notes that culturalist perspective suffers from ahistorical/asocial/static conceptualization, and lacks analysis of class/sex/structural dimensions of so-called cultural expressions. Calls for recognition of the dialectic of cultural process. (MH)
