Cultural Considerations in Advising Latino/a Students
Negroni-Rodriguez, Lirio K.; Dicks, Barbara A.; Morales, Julio
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v26 n1-2 p201-221 Sep 2006
This paper presents a model for advising Latino/a students in graduate social work programs. The model is based on ecological-systemic and empowerment theory and ascribes to the social work values and cultural competence standards proposed by the National Association of Social Workers. It has been developed within an institution that has sought diversity in its faculty and student body and appreciates and considers Latino/a students' strengths and needs. Implementing this model requires commitment and a sustained mentoring relationship. The model enhances the recruitment and retention of Latino/a students. It is true for most Latino/a students and other minority groups. (Contains 1 figure.)
