Latinos! Latinos! Latinos!
"Currently in the United States, there are 47.8 million Latinos/as (U.S. Census Bureau, 2010).
Latino/as are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population, and by the year 2050, it is estimated that approximately one out of every four people in the United States will be Latino/a (U.S. Census Bureau, 2010).
By sheer numbers alone, the Latino/a population should be a focus as both recipients and providers of psychological services.
However, in addition to the numerical imperative, U.S. Latino/as disproportionately face issues such as poverty, mental and physical health challenges, high dropout rates from school, and persistent racism and discrimination."
