Early Intervention with Latino Families: Implications for Practice
Withrow, Rebecca L.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v36 n4 p245 Oct 2008
Counselors and early interventionists increasingly serve Spanish-speaking families. Yet, often, cultural accommodations merely imply use of interpreters or bilingual providers. Cultural competence requires self-awareness and understanding the client's community and specific risk and resiliency factors. Implications for serving clients of Latino origins are discussed and illustrated with a case study.
