dc.description.abstractPostpartum depression (PPD) is a form of mental health impairment. There are reports stating that overall Latinas suffer from more mental health disorders than Latinos and more than women of other ethnic origins. The immigrant Latina community in the U.S. historically has been reluctant to seek treatment for any mental health condition, but especially postpartum depression. Since the Latino/a population is the fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S., it is important to address current mental health practices addressing Latina mother's with postpartum depression. This literature review has revealed that Master's-level counselors are limited in their understanding of multicultural clients and ethical principles that may be applied to their clinical practice when working with the Latina mother with postpartum depression. Furthermore, Latina mothers do not have adequate access to mental health care and there has been research that demonstrates that this care can lack quality. Moreover, the results of this review suggest that current-licensed counselors recognize this lack and seek additional training above and beyond their graduate programs. This review suggests strengthening the ethical component of the education and training of Master's-level graduate programs to better prepare counselors to ethically address the needs of multicultural populations.en
