This workshop is the fourth of a six-part series, in which we will explore implicit bias, intersectionality, and other cultural factors that affect behavioral health treatment. You will learn about strategies and resources for supporting LGBTIQA, Muslim, Latinx, and African-American clients and how to create a more welcoming and inclusive practice. This presentation will provide a brief overview of Latinx cultural outlooks and values and how they impact mental health presentations and treatment approaches. The discussion will center on different models that help us to assess and understand the impact of immigration in the Latinx populations experience with recommendations around assessment and treatment planning. Finally, we will explore how power dynamics, race, and different therapeutic approaches can impact how we work with Latinx individuals. The overall goal will be for participants to come away with an increased understanding of the complexity that is involved in treating Latinx individuals in a culturally responsive yet nuanced manner.
