Counseling Latina/Latino Clients
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
In Counseling Latina/Latino Clients, Dr. Patricia Arredondo demonstrates her contextual, psychohistorical approach to therapy with clients whose heritage is from one of the many Spanish speaking countries. Her approach takes into consideration not just the client as an individual, but the client in context. This means attending to the client's culture, family traditions, religious beliefs, current situation, and historical context.
In this session, Dr. Arredondo helps a 39-year-old Latina woman work out how to fit the changes in her life into the context of her family's expectations of her as well as her own life goals.
