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.
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.
Hola, queridos! Soy Leslie Priscilla. I’m a first-generation non-black Chicana mother to three bicultural children. I’m a descendant of Indigenous Tarahumara Rarámuri and Spanish lineages, and I’ve resided on occupied Tongva and Acjachemen land, a.k.a Orange County, CA, all my life.
I’ve been working with children, caregivers, and familias for over 14 years, both as a teacher and through work with various mental health organizations throughout Orange County. But now I share my medicine with you all through Latinx Parenting, the bilingual organization I founded.
Latinx Parenting is rooted in children’s rights, social & racial justice, and antiracism, and offers family education and support that is trauma-informed, healing-centered, amplifying of our strengths, advocacy, and culturally sustaining of and for the Latinx community and its allies.
Through curated and passionate content, workshops, and courses, Latinx Parenting supports parents, caregivers, and former Latinx children to heal their lineages, raise thriving future ancestors, and create more connection with themselves, their children, and their cultura. My belief is that through this work we can leave a legacy of thriving for our gente. I’m so happy that you’re with us on this journey!
