Latino/Latina clients share many characteristics while, of course, being diverse among themselves. In this DVD, a White female counselor works with a Latino/Latina couple with alertness to some issues common to traditional Latino/Latina culture. The counselor sensitively accounts for cultural dimensions such as familismo, respeto, simpatia, and defined gender roles in this session. The DVD illustrates culturally alert counseling skills that might be important in working with Latino/Latina clients, such as focusing on the present, taking a problem-solving orientation, including family in the process, acknowledging the family hierarchy, and adapting language. The session uses graphics and narrative voiceover to teach counselors how to be effective with Latino/Latina clients. By viewing the session in its entirety, students and clinicians will benefit from seeing firsthand how the counselor manages the session and uses opportunities to deepen the therapeutic relationship.
