Substance-Using Hispanic Youth and Their Families: Review of Engagement and Treatment Strategies
Cannon, Edward; Levy, Marielle
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v16 n3 p199-203 2008
A growing population of Hispanic immigrants to the United States means that helping professionals need to gain knowledge about specific issues affecting these groups. Stresses related to the immigration experience and minority status can influence the use of alcohol and illegal substances by Hispanic adolescents. Because the family is considered the preferred unit of treatment for this population, studies addressing approaches to engagement and treatment are reviewed, and two promising models are highlighted: the strategic structural systems engagement approach and the brief strategic family therapy model.
