Counseling Psychologist, v29 n1 p18-54 Jan 2001
Reviews literature pertaining to Chicanas/os' utilization of conventional mental health services. Notes that Chicanas/os underutilize mental health services, instead preferring family or nontraditional helpers for assistance. Discusses lack of support in the literature for use of many major psychological tests with Chicanas/os but reports that these instruments continue to be used. Offers recommendations for counseling practice and future research. (JDM)
