    COUNSELING AND THERAPY WITH RACIAL/ETHNIC MINORITY POPULATIONS
    Summary of Lecture on Chapter 17: Counseling Hispanic/Latino Americans.
    {Summary of Chapter 17.doc}
    Critical Discussion Questions
    Articulate the important dimensions (family values/structure, sex role expectations, role conflict, acculturation, religiosity, educational characteristics, and discrimination) of Latino/Hispanic culture and their implications for counseling practice
    Identify various ethnic groups that would identify as Latino/Hispanic American? What are some of the cultural differences between these groups?
    Do you feel that bilingual education programs are more harmful or helpful? Why?
    Let’s say you are working with a family where the Hispanic child has a disagreement with the father and you happen to agree with the child—what would you do? How might your values interfere with your ability to work with this case?
    In the chapter, the idea of acculturation and the process that a counselor uses to measure acculturation is a common theme. However, once you have this information, what do you do with it? Is there a “perfect” degree of acculturation to strive for? If not, what is the ultimate goal?
