A Professionals Intensive Training Rooted in Providing Care That Honors and Affirms Our Cultures

The Latinx Parenting Professionals Intensive will be a thorough discourse of the present well-being of an ever-expanding and evolving Latinx family demographic within this country: Latin American origin families.

In this two-day, 8-hour training, service professionals and care providers like therapists, social workers, early childhood educators, childcare providers, clergy, and medical professionals will learn tools rooted in social justice, healing-centered engagement and cultural sustenance, and valuable new skills for supporting Latinx parents and children in their practice. These include immigrant parents, first and second-generation U.S.-born Latinx self-identified parents, and their children.

During this course you will…

Identify 3 core strengths in Latinx parenting practices that preserve family values and connection (clinical)

Explore 3 assessment tools for assessing Latinx parenting practices in relation to abuse and child welfare allegations (clinical)

Discuss 2 main culturally relevant, ethical considerations for supporting Latinx parents in shifting their perspectives on child-raising (ethical)

From the interpersonal to the systemic, there is a concern that increasing numbers of Latinx families are not receiving culturally sustaining services that take into account their specific needs and histories. This can create additional stress and evidence is mounting that when stress is high for either the child or the parent, real support and understanding is needed for both. 

But it’s not always easy to contextualize families while supporting them with actionable information and help in a therapeutic or childcare setting so that parents and children can thrive.

Participants in this workshop will come away with a holistic understanding of Latinx cultural and environmental circumstances pertaining to their unique parenting styles and intergenerational experiences and how to implement strategies with families that honor and sustain their cultural values respectfully.

We’ll review and discuss Trauma-Informed Care and Healing Centered engagement and its relevance to supporting Latinx communities in mental health and within family dynamics. You’ll receive and overview of historical oppression and its significance to Latinx communities and learn healing practices that are person-centered, trauma-informed, and strengths-based.

We will also take a look at the implications for therapists, teachers, family educators, and other practitioners and the importance of strength-based and culturally sustaining adaptations towards Latinx self-actualization and thriving rooted in social justice and nonviolence. 

"I would definitely recommend that if you're considering taking this training, you take that step to do it.
It was a very powerful experience. I left with both concrete skills and information, but also a shifted sense of how to exist in this work and a different framework just for how I approach it."
— Courtney M.
"I experienced such a deep sense of honor for mi cultura, my ancestors, my family, my heritage, and myself.
And it gave me hope for the future of nuestra gente -- being able to celebrate, honor, and share in our experiences while helping other families, children, and adults heal from the pain that they've experienced."
— Cindi R., wisdom-haired abuela

This training is deep spiritual community work...

"This training is such beautiful work & gets to the heart of healing for so many. I am in deep gratitude and appreciation for bringing these lessons BACK to our hearts, minds, and spirits by reconnecting to ways that have been challenged by the traumas of colonization. As parents and clinicians, I appreciated being connected to our inner child to be able to show up in the world and healing work in a way that holds compassion and connection at the forefront of our interactions with our community we support. Being able to connect with so many amazing folks who are committed to shifting from a false "chancla" culture to one where everyone is honored with safety and well-being has been a long time coming. This training is deep spiritual community work. Thank you all for all your energia in bringing us together to continue the growth and healing that is inside our gente. We are the medicina.
Thank you. Gracias. Tlazocamati."
