Abstract

In 2012, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated the Latino population in Oregon to be 12.2% representing 471,608 of the 3,930,065 Oregonians (U.S. Census Bureau, 2014). Mexican American culture is a complex system derived from an accumulation of customs, norms, beliefs, experiences, knowledge, meanings, hierarchies, and religion, which is deeply woven into the threads of Mexican American societies. The growth of Mexican Americans requires rehabilitation counselors to gain a knowledgeable understanding of Mexican American culture, as to best serve this population. Rehabilitation counseling multicultural competence involves a counselor’s awareness of disabilities that Mexican American experiences and how they are dealt with.
