Working with Latino families?  This class will be perfect for you. This class will explore statistics, etiquette, different family values, rituals, religion, and different teaching and learning implications of Latino Families. Discussed will be general family beliefs regarding mental health and disabilities and other important concepts in the Latino culture. What is acculturation and how do we best understand and help Latino families through their process? Working with Latino families requires an understanding of different worldviews that may impact how individuals communicate with professionals as well as their own children, and how these worldviews shape expectations for development.
