This timely practical reference addresses the lack of Spanish-language resources for mental health professionals to use with their Latino clients. Geared toward both English- and Spanish-speaking practitioners in a variety of settings, this volume is designed to minimize misunderstandings between the clinician and client, and with that the possibility of inaccurate diagnosis and/or ineffective treatment. Coverage for each topic features a discussion of cultural considerations, guidelines for evidence-based best practices, a review of available findings, a treatment plan, plus clinical tools and client handouts, homework sheets, worksheets, and other materials. Chapters span a wide range of disorders and problems over the life-course, and include reproducible resources for:

  •          Assessing for race-based trauma.
  •          Using behavioral activation and cognitive interventions to treat depression among Latinos.
  •          Treating aggression, substance use, abuse, and dependence among Latino Adults.
  •          Treating behavioral problems among Latino adolescents. 
  •          Treating anxiety among Latino children.
  •          Working with Latino couples.
  •          Restoring legal competency with Latinos. 

TheToolkit for Counseling Spanish-Speaking Clientsfills a glaring need in behavioral service delivery, offering health psychologists, social workers, clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, and other helping professionals culturally-relevant support for working with this under served population. The materials included here are an important step toward dismantling barriers to mental health care.
