Participants, initially, will review a general introduction to the Latina American population, such as differences between Latinos/Hispanics/LatinX. The diversity found throughout Latina 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.
