"Cuento" Group Work in Emerging Rural Latino Communities: Promoting Personal-Social Development of Latina/o Middle School Students of Mexican Heritage
Villalba, Jose A.; Ivers, Nathaniel N.; Ohlms, Amanda Bartley
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v35 n1 p23-43 Mar 2010
The experiences of Latina/o youth in rural emerging Latino communities are largely absent in the literature. This article proposes the benefits of a "Cuento" group work intervention designed to promote Latina/o student personal-social development. An outline of the group intervention offered to middle school students of Mexican Heritage is provided, in an effort to facilitate replication of the intervention in other emerging Latino communities. Preliminary pilot data on group efficacy also are presented. (Contains 1 table.)
