Filling a gap in the current literature, Latinx Healing Practices: Psychospiritual Counseling Interventions convenes the voices of Latinx psychologists and Indigenous spirituality practitioners to provide future and current mental health professionals with a greater understanding of Latinx spirituality, healing traditions, worldviews, and experiences. Armed with this knowledge, readers are equipped to provide their clients with counseling and interventions that are at once culturally aware and highly effective.

Section I provides an overview of specific healing practices, with emphasis on the practice of prayer, and the role of visionary experience within Latinx spirituality. Section II features personal, narrative, and qualitative stories of transformation, including stories of collaboration between curanderas/os and psychotherapists, Mexican migrant farmworkers' narratives on adversity, spirituality, and coping, and more. Section III addresses ethical standards, the importance of inclusion of Latinx spiritual models of practice when preparing professional counselors, and recommendations for the integration of spirituality and applied practice in education and training.

Latinx Healing Practices: Psychospiritual Counseling Interventions is part of the Cognella Series on Advances in Culture, Race, and Ethnicity. The series, co-sponsored by Division 45 of the American Psychological Association, addresses critical and emerging issues within culture, race, and ethnic studies, as well as specific topics among key ethnocultural groups.
