In this training, participants will be review risk factors and exposure to trauma that Central Americans experience in their country of origin, as well as while residing in the United States. Participants, initially, will review a general introduction to the LatinX American population, such as differences between Latinos/Hispanics/LatinX. The diversity found throughout Latino 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 and work with LatinX families that are considered supportive and culturally responsive.
