Working with Latino/a Clients

  1. Are the characteristics described in this chapter consistent with your experiences and/or perceptions of
    Latino/a culture? What was surprising?
  2. Do you come from a culture that is authoritarian and hierarchical? If so, would you feel more comfortable
    when a service provider takes on an authoritative role? If not, how does an authoritative relationship make you
    feel? How might you create a sense of authority with clients from high power distance cultures, even when you
    may not fit a norm of traditional roles (gender, age, and so on)?
  3. Religion plays a major role in Latino/a culture. What is your relationship with religion? What role do you
    believe religion plays within the helping process? How comfortable do you feel working with clients with strong
    religious beliefs?
