Professor Saskias Casanova Reviews
Prof: Saskias Casanova / Fall 2021
May 25, 2022
Class was interesting and engaging, as a latino student it’s easy to understand a lot of the concepts presented and how a lot of latinx psychology presents itself. Helps to understand how to provide clinical care to latinx populations in ways that are respectful to the culture and it’s values.
There is upsetting content covered such as historical mistreatment of latinos throughout many systems, covered latino experiences with racism, and immigration as well as deportation. Teaches the various values of latinx cultures such as concepts of machismo and marianismo, fatalism and familial values. Important class if you want to practice in latinx populations.
Professor Casanova is passionate and understanding and very knowledgeable and open about class topics.
