The workshop will begin by considering the complex dynamics surrounding Latine/Latinx cultural identity. While this workshop is introductory in nature, it will assist any practitioner in their efforts towards intentional, skillful, and effective partnership with Latine people. While special attention will be provided to behavioral health practice, the majority of the content will be relevant to any practitioner including educators and administrators. The workshop will include time for discussion and open dialogue.

Objectives:

  • Improve your understanding of the cultural identity of Latine
  • Describe key qualities of Latine culture
  • Consider best practices for effectively working with the Latine community
