Therapists, Educators, Healthcare Personnel, and the communities that organizations service.
Latinx Parentings can offer a variety of trainings geared for professionals which offer a healing-centered engagement space for service providers to become more culturally sustaining for and with Latinx families. We work with each individual partner to tailor the content, length, and frequency of a professional development training. Some of the topics covered at length within our Professional Development trainings may include:
At Latinx Parenting we operate from the understanding that like each family, each child, each classroom, each school and each organization that serves them is unique and has specific needs. Our team is ready to work with you to develop a training program that meets your individual and collective needs to best serve the individuals and families you come into contact with daily.
We can provide a variety of topics for professionals, from one-hour overviews of Trauma-informed Nonviolent Child Raising to and one- to two-full day professional development trainings. We can assist in the planning and integration of a school or organization-wide culturally and trauma sensitive strategy. We are also able to offer consultation on an ongoing basis. Our goal is to provide what you need to enhance your organization and programming using a framework of nonviolence rooted in cultural sensitivity, historical and individual trauma awareness. We recognize that for many organizations serving families this process is just that: a process.
No! Our offerings are not only for Latinx staff or service providers. It is especially important for service providers of all backgrounds to become culturally competent and aware especially if they work with Latinx families.
This depends on our calendar! We prefer at least 4-6 weeks to schedule.
Please make us aware as soon as you get in touch. We understand that many organizations have fiscal funds to allocate before the end of your fiscal year. We do our best to accommodate with urgency.

Protect your children. Teach them what is love can feel like vs what love is not. Yes, we must respect our elders but that does not mean suppressing our own emotions to satisfy their need to feel in power.
We know we can do better so we are doing it. It's hard but it's going to be worth It. Te lo prometo.
Sigue pa' lante! 💗

In order to break cycles, liberate our people from colonial harms, and not have history repeat itself, we must practice Indigenous ways of healing.
When so-called "misbehavior" occurs, we should focus on healing and teaching. Breaking the cycle of choosing to punish is necessary as we get to the roots of what caused the "misbehavior".
Additionally, the labeling of this is from a power-over dynamic where someone gets to subjectively decide who is "good" and who is "bad". This breeds disconnection and diminishes opportunities for discovering ways of being that are in harmony with the vision we hold for this world. This is in alignment with nonviolence and liberation practice.
We know that an "offender", by this punitive society's standards, is usually labeled as a criminal. I've been taught, by Rainy River First Nations researcher Dr. Renee Linklater, that our way of thinking about these humans must shift to "someone who has caused harm". This way, we focus on who the offender is, and therein what their capacity or willingness for healing is, versus what they have done.
Similarly, by using the term "victim", we can opt to change this to a more descriptive "someone who has been hurt". This lets them know they are more than what was done to them, and that the harm that they experienced is valid and worth examining.
We need to break these cycles and it all starts with moving from a place of understanding actions versus punishment and pathology.
Our Professionals Intensive dives into this way more. We will be spending 8 hours exploring the ins and outs of how to best serve Latinx families specifically.
Registration closes THIS FRIDAY, September, 24th and space is limited. Payment plans available. 💖

Louder for the people in the back! 👂🏽
Stop 👏🏾 repeating 👏🏾 trauma cycles 👏🏾 by avoiding 👏🏾 inner 👏🏾 work! 👏🏾
Let me explain something. When we stay in avoidance of our shadows, when we stay comfortable with that cushy blindfold that prevents us from seeing children as whole beings, and when we stay in defense of the violence that WE experienced (not JUST physical, btw), the potential for our culture to walk into liberation diminishes in a big way.
Yes, be gentle with yourself as you bring light to those shadows and be so compassionate as others are on their paths. AND ALSO! Stay disciplined and, as best you can, in alignment with the vision of liberated familias. We begin this by getting really honest about what happened to us and our people. We proceed by being courageous to do it differently.
