The purpose of this project was to propose a psychoeducational group for middle school first- generation male Latino students that aims to prevent school disengagement, which results in school drop outs for this particular group of students. Hermanos Unidos group recognizes these influences and works with the group members to challenge the irrational beliefs and provides alternative healthier behaviors that will make middle school easier to manage. A review of the literature recommends that both cognitive behavior therapy and Adlerian counseling groups are beneficial in supporting young students to develop positive behaviors and beliefs by providing useful social and academic skills. The number one goal of the group is to provide first-generation male Latino middle school students the skills of networking, conflict resolution and stress management skills, the will help them during middle school. The strengths and limitations for this groups are provided along with future considerations for school counselors to use in future research.
