Understanding Latino Families
Scholarship, Policy, and Practice

Edited by:


June 1995 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
A fresh approach to the study of Latino families is offered in this volume which focuses on the strengths of Latino/Hispanic groups, the structural processes that impede their progress and the cultural and familial processes that enhance their intergenerational adaptation and resilience. The contributors present social and demographic profiles of Latino groups in the United States, empirical and conceptual reviews of Latino family approaches, and practice and policy implications from studies of Latino social programmes.
