Among teenage Latinas in the United States, suicide attempts occur at rates sometimes twice as high as other youth. This book looks into the development of young Latinas, girls caught between two cultures, struggling to reconcile them. It examines the anatomy of experiences before, during, and after suicide attempts and suggests new ways of understanding them. More importantly, it offers researchers and clinicians a model for understanding and working with young Latinas and their families in a compassionate, culturally sensitive manner.
