It is generally regarded that therapies ought to be culturally sensitive. However, the precise meaning of this phrase and the extent and substance of cultural tailoring of therapies are unclear. 173 Latinx and non Latinx college students were shown 4 videos of culturally untailored behavior therapy and were asked to imagine themselves as the recipient of the therapy from the therapist depicted in the video. They were then asked to rate these videos on a variety of dimensions including offensiveness, insensitivity, effectiveness, ability to build rapport, meeting personal needs, and willingness to return. Results indicated no differences in the ratings of Latinx and non-Latinx students and both groups rated the therapy positively. Thus, there is not evidence that this sample found untailored standard behavioral therapies as culturally problematic. Limitations include a sampling of only one subgroup (college students) and one minority population (Latinx).
Key words: Latinx, Hispanic, Treatment Acceptability, Behavioral Therapy.
