It's National Hispanic Heritage Month. Here is one MST expert's story of being Hispanic and practicing Multisystemic Therapy.
I grew up in Queens, the most diverse borough of New York City. I was surrounded by many languages, but Spanish was what my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and friends spoke. It will always give me a sense of family.
We are celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. The observance is marked by music, awards and awareness of the illustrious Latino experience and history. This festive period led me to reflect on my personal heritage that has opened many doors of opportunity.
