There do appear to be certain areas where Chicano patients in groups may differ from others, notably in a certain reticence to deal with feelings toward the therapists and in the various manifestations of the presence of a second language and a unique ethnic background. The specific ways that the different culture and language express themselves in the group process are just now beginning to be described in a non-stereotyping manner. In other areas the Chicano patients the authors have observed in groups do not differently than other patients as long as attention is paid to language, economic, and cultural factors and these are dealt with actively and sensitively.
