Healing from Violence by Christauria Welland
Book DescriptionLatinos are the fastest growing minority population in the United States. According to the 2000 Census, Latinos accounted for 12.5 per cent of the US population, or 35.3 million residents. The influence of this large and growing demographic can be seen throughout every discipline, including social work, where numerous books on multicultural assessment, counseling, and research have begun to appear. One area of inquiry, however, that remains largely unexplored is domestic violence within Latino families. Although it appears that such violence occurs more frequently in Latino families than in Caucasian families, little research has been done on this topic and no counseling programs explicitly developed for Latino families currently exist.This book fills this void. Based on a research study of 150 Latino men who completed a year of court-ordered treatment in Southern California, the book mixes quantitative and qualitative methodology in order to provide counselors with an opportunity to hear first-hand how Latino men think about manhood, marriage, and family life. "Healing from Violence" uses in-depth portraits, to guide counselors in tailoring treatment plans to the needs of Latino men.
