This book and CD package is similar in design to other books in the Paso a Paso Series for Health Care Professionals. This package is specifically for mental health workers attempting to break through language and cultural barriers between English- and Spanish- speaking participants. The suggested application is a small group setting in the workplace in which a fluent Spanish speaker serves as a facilitator at one hour sessions held once a week. The learner is expected to work daily on exercises and practice listening and responding to the CD. The premise is that the beginning learner will not be alone in a situation where a conversation is beyond their ability; the novice speaker will be part of a team and will acquire greater competency through active, on-the-job speaking and listening. All too often non-English-speaking newcomers are isolated, separated from the family support systems they once enjoyed in their native countries. They are overwhelmed and don't realize assistance is available to address the depression, anger, and frustration they are feeling. This handbook and CD set will help mental health and social workers reach across the language barriers to help their clients.

The purpose of Qu le Duele? is to teach healthcare professionals how to communicate, in Spanish, with Hispanic patients. This highly practical text is designed to help students and practicing professionals develop their oral communication skills. Basic grammar explanations and relevant vocabulary, with an emphasis on the construction of yes/no questions, are provided. The text focuses on highly applicable and relevant material. The exercises in each chapter begin with simple drills testing the readers recognition and comprehension of the material learned, culminating in more involved exercises (such as role-playing) geared towards the practice of Spanish in real-life scenarios. Furthermore, a CD that can be used for at-home practice accompanies the text to help improve ones listening comprehension skills.This book is adaptable to classes of different types and lengths. Some hospitals are providing six to eight-week Spanish courses of levels 1 and 2, with a total of twelve hours of instruction per level. This book is ideal for such a setting, as it could be divided into two parts: the first part for level 1, and the second part for level 2. For other types of courses, such as semester-long classes offered at community colleges or universities, this book is equally as ideal because, in its entirety, it provides more than enough material for such a class.In the second edition, students will find pre- and post-reading activities for every cultural reading selection. The pre-reading activities will help students brainstorm about their own culture and experiences; the post-reading activities will ask students to apply what they learned in the reading to different real-life scenarios, and to compare and contrast their own culture to the Hispanic one. In addition, we have added Study Tips throughout the chapters and developed a PowerPoint presentation for instructors to use in the classroom.Qu le Duele? will serve as a traditional textbook for students and as a reference tool for healthcare professionals who must speak with Hispanic patients. Emphasizing practicality, this relatively small book with a soft cover and index will allow readers to locate needed material "on the spot."
