Systemic racism, ethnocentrism and xenophobia contribute to the negative experiences of Latinx children and families in the US. The daily interaction with microaggressions, prejudice, discrimination, and racism can lead to race-based stress in these youth and, left untreated, evolve into racial trauma. This workshop will explore the different systems that contribute to racial trauma and negative mental health outcomes for Latinx children and families. Participants will also explore the layered experience of racial trauma in Latinx children and adults as well as the clinical presentations of racial trauma in Latinx youth.

Learning Objectives

In this two day workshop, participants will:

  • Explore the impact of racial stress and trauma on mental and physical health of Latinx children and families.
  • Analyze and discuss the sources of racial trauma in Latinx children and families.
  • Formulate expressive interventions to help with racial trauma in Latinx youth
