This book serves as both a graduate textbook and clinical reference that helps in the understanding of relevant cultural values and their effect on the grieving process. This book also addresses the application of specific interventions in a culturally relevant manner, including the relevance of language in grief therapy, psychology and counseling with a Latino population.

The main focus of this book is to identify underlying pathologies, depressions, or anxieties that could have existed before, and the relevance of the cultural components that can interfere with the adaption to, and the resolution of grief. Written in three parts, each section demonstrates a clear hands-on approach on how to respond to Latino patients and address aspects universally related to grief and psychological points of view.

Key features:

  • Addresses culturally-specific and diverse narratives of loss to illustrate cultural revelations in the grief process and the clinical assessment of denial and spirituality
  • Discusses the relevance of language in the expression of grief, assessment and treatment
  • Presents clear and easy-to-read grief therapy approaches and methods
  • Includes adaptations of traditional psychotherapeutic techniques, incorporating relevant cultural values
