ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book documents the barriers to success encountered by U.S. Latino films over the past three decades, as their proponents sought to secure distribution deals and prove the films' worth as commodities. Over time, more studio and studio specialty divisions have acquired and circulated them, but many film distributors still do not understand the nuances of the U.S. Latino market and how to promote these films. The book includes interviews with marketers, publicists, and producers, and secondary research material from trade publications, newspaper articles, and websites, centering on marketing strategies, release dates, and box office figures. One of the first academic works to analyze the concurrent social and industrial factors within the U.S. Latino community and the larger Hollywood marketplace, this book examines and illuminates the history of U.S. Latino films.

Counterstorytelling Narratives of Latino Teenag...
33,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Counterstorytelling Narratives of Latino Teenage Boys presents an ethnographic portrait of the experiences and counterstories of nine Latino teenage boys representing different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds attending a high school in North Carolina. Using critical race theory (CRT), Latino critical theory (LatCrit), and Chicano/a epistemologies as a theoretical framework, the book unveils how differing layers of oppression shape the lives of these boys of color through the intersections of race, gender, and class. Contrary to majoritarian assumptions, cultural deficit models, and their teachers' low expectations, this research reveals how participants used their cultural capital as a foundation to develop resiliency. The findings in this book suggest that teachers, school administrators, and staff could benefit from a better understanding of Latino/a students' community cultural wealth as a fundamental element for these students' academic success. Counterstorytelling Narratives of Latino Teenage Boys will be an excellent resource for teachers, school administrators, college students, and pre-service teachers. It will be useful in courses in Latino/a studies in the United States, multicultural studies, race and education studies, social justice in education, race and gender studies, and social foundations in education.

Creating Infrastructures for Latino Mental Health
117,69 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The growing Latino population of the United States stands poised to shape the nation s future throughout the twenty-first century, yet serious obstacles hinder the full participation of the Latino community in American society. Access to mental health care poses a particular challenge for many segments of the population. Although significant scholarship has focused on the delivery of culturally competent practice, few academic resources address systemic issues that affect the actual delivery of services to Latino clients. In response, Creating Infrastructures for Latino Mental Health provides the first interdisciplinary guide aimed at improving access to mental health services. Experts from several specialties provide state-of-the-art analyses and innovative strategies for tackling the structural, organizational, and linguistic issues that contribute to service inequities. Collectively, the book chapters call attention to clinical, geographical, and social contexts, as well as to populations as varied as breast cancer survivors, rural new growth communities, and unaccompanied immigrant youth. The authors provide an exquisite array of intersecting topics linked by a common theme: the need for a broad social response to transform mental health service for Latinos. Among the topics covered:· Infrastructure development aimed at specific dimensions of structural inequality· The role of government in facilitating the development of infrastructures· The need for federal policy to protect immigrants and aid in their incorporation · Building local infrastructures attuned to the specific needs of communities· Developing a bilingual workforce through interdisciplinary collaboration, organizational planning, and training of staff and interpreters · Addressing the mental health needs of Latino youth in the juvenile justice system· Expanding educational opportunities for first-generation college students· Supporting Latino families caring for persons with serious mental illness"An extraordinary contribution to multiple stakeholders. Provides guideposts for policy-makers, administrators, researchers and clinicians alike. -- Patricia Arredondo, EdD, Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, University of WI-Milwaukee This book's comprehensive compendium of knowledge of Latino mental health makes it indispensable reading not only for mental health professionals, social workers and educators but for all those interested in the psychology and culture of the fastest growing population in America. -- Pastora San Juan Cafferty, PhD, Professor Emerita, School of Social Service Administration, University of Chicago This book addresses tremendous gaps in the fields of Latino mental health and healthcare. Packed with useful information, innovative perspectives, and actionable policy recommendations, this interdisciplinary effort undoubtedly will become a go-to resource in meeting the mental-health needs of Latinos. -- Glenn Flores, MD, FAAP, Director, Division of General Pediatrics, Professor of Pediatrics, Clinical Sciences, and Public Health, The Judith and Charles Ginsburg Chair in Pediatrics, UT Southwestern Medical Center and Children's Medical Center Dallas
