The Latino/a diaspora is undoubtedly transforming the demographics and cultural geographies of the United States. Diaspora Studies in Education advances an active use of the concept of "diaspora", focusing on processes that impact the diasporization of the Latino/a population, and more specifically, examining those diasporization processes in the arena of education. Focusing on the education of Puerto Ricans, the second largest Latino/a subgroup, the authors of this volume elucidate themes that are useful not only for those concerned with the education of Puerto Rican youth but also applicable to the study of other diasporic communities. The book is useful as a text in a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, including foundations of education, multicultural education, anthropology of education, and introductory courses in Latino and ethnic studies departments.

Cultural differences play a part in communication breakdowns between students and teachers, and only a complete understanding of the model that English instructors use when teaching writing gives us an insight into the reasons why. This book observes and analyzes the communication patterns of Latino students in an English course at the college level, closely observing the interaction between Latino students and the teacher, as well as between Latino students and other student groups in the class. Learning to Write as a Hostile Act for Latino Students concludes that cultural differences - and the resulting miscommunications - significantly contribute to the negative impressions Latino students have about the writing process and English courses. Understanding these differences is crucial to improving the teaching of writing to Latino and other minority students.

As the largest and youngest minority group in the United States, the 60 million Latinos living in the U.S. represent the second-largest concentration of Hispanic people in the entire world, after Mexico. Needless to say, the population of Latinos in the U.S. is causing a shift, not only changing the demographic landscape of the country, but also impacting national culture, politics, and spoken language. While Latinos comprise a diverse minority group-with variousreligious beliefs, political ideologies, and social values-commentators on both sides of the political divide have lumped Latino Americans into a homogenous group that is often misunderstood.Latinos in the United States: What Everyone Need to Know® provides a comprehensive, multifaceted exploration of Latino American history and culture and the forces shaping this minority group in the U.S. From exploring the origins of the term "latino" and examining what constitutes Latin America, to tracing topical issues like DREAMers, the mass incarceration of Latino males, and the controversial relationship between Latin America and the United States, Ilan Stavans seeks tounderstand the complexities and unique position of Latino Americans. Throughout he breaks down the various subgroups within the Latino minority (Mexican-Americans, Dominican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, Puerto Ricans on the mainland, and so on), and the degree to which these groups constitute-or don't-a homogenouscommunity, their history, and where their future challenges lay. He sees Latino culture as undergoing dramatic changes as a result of acculturation-changes that are fostering a new "mestizo" identity that is part Hispanic and part American. However, Latinos living in the United States are also impacting American culture. As Ilan Stavans argues, no other minority group will have a more decisive impact on the future of the United States.

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

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! White Hispanic or White Latino Americans are White Americans of European origin. As the concepts of race and ethnicity ? "ethnicity" is used as a synonym for Hispanic or Latino origin ? are mutually independent in the Office of Management and Budget's and United States Census Bureau's definitions, every American is identified by both race and ethnicity. Hispanic or Latino people are those who report origins in Spain or Hispanic Latin America, and they may be of any race, Black, white or Asian. Thus each race, including White American, comprises individuals who are "Hispanic or Latino", which only means that they speak the Spanish language and individuals who are not of Spanish speaking countries.
