This book presents a research-based problem-solving model. As a tool, the LIBRE Model has been used to facilitate positive change and to address the importance of beliefs, values, mores, customs and traditions. The problem solver is invited to express “self ” as an individual with cultural experiences, both within their familial setting and the broad social context. Cultural efficacy is introduced as the motivational impetus and problem solving as the skill toward self-managed successful communication. To this end, the Listen-Identify-Brainstorm-Reality test-Encourage (LIBRE) Model problem-solving activity and engagement styles are explained in application with Latinos/as. A glossary of terms has also been provided along with an index.
