In this training, participants will review risk factors and exposure to trauma that Central Americans experience in their country of origin and while residing in the United States. Participants will review a general introduction to the Latin American population, such as differences between Latinos/Hispanics/LatinX. The diversity found throughout Latin America will be highlighted to create a foundation in exploring the trauma and challenges that are specific to Central America. Lastly, participants will identify ways to engage with LatinX families that is considered supportive and culturally responsive.
