The Need for Qualitative Research on Mental Health of Elder Hispanics.
Brink, T. L.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v38 n3 p279-91 1994
Calls purely quantitative measures of Hispanic aged mental health insufficiently sensitive to cultural factors. Describes uses and limitations of qualitative methods, especially in-depth interviews and life histories, and suggests that researchers include psychometric tests in interviews to improve data interpretation. Develops Adlerian perspective and relevant dimensions for evaluating cases. Presents seven cases illustrating diversity of Hispanic elders. (Author/NB)
