When providing marriage and relationship education to Hispanic couples, practitioners must be aware of a multitude of cultural components that influence how couples will respond to a curriculum, or if the curriculum will even be effective as a learning device. Adaptations must be made on a variety of issues to ensure that the concepts and ideas presented in a curriculum are relevant and valuable to Hispanics. Practitioners should apply the lessons learned that are outlined in this brief when adapting curricula and should consider other factors that may be distinct to their target population. The more specific a curriculum is to the Hispanic couples to whom it is presented, the more likely it is that the couples will perceive the information and skills as worthwhile and beneficial to their own relationship.
