Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The unique psychological problems plaguing Mexican Americans have led to a barrage of articles about how to counsel this population. However, few of these articles have addressed some of the reasons Mexican Americans have historically underutilized mental health counseling services (Keefe & Casas, 1980; Keefe, Padilla, & Carlos, 1978; Padilla & Ruiz, 1973; Padilla, Ruiz, & Alvarez, 1975; Ponterotto, 1987; Sue, 1977). Even fewer articles have addressed the issue of acculturation and its major role in causing psychological stress in the lives of many Mexican Americans (Montgomery, 1992; Padilla, Alvarez, & Lindholm, 1986).
