Forgot your login? GET HELP

Latino patients often prefer psychotherapy to pharmacotherapy for the treatment of depression. Psychotherapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy, have been found to be effective treatments for patients with depression, particularly for Latino patients. Clinicians should be respectful of the core values of family, respect, identity, and spirituality in Latino cultures and should modify psychotherapies accordingly.
