This webinar will take place on 12/10/21 from 12:00pm-1:30pm EST. Our reliance on narrow definitions of trauma has impeded the ability of our field to fully grasp the pervasive and multitudinous ways in which trauma permeates the lives of marginalized groups. It is rare, if ever, that dimensions of culture, especially socio-cultural oppression, are conceptualized as a form of trauma. The failure to consider socio-cultural oppression as a manifestation of trauma has made it difficult, if not impossible, for clinicians and other human service providers to respond effectively to the complex and multifaceted needs of many clients from oppressed backgrounds. Clients from marginalized and oppressed backgrounds are often misunderstood, misdiagnosed, and consequently underserved. The lack of attention devoted to the intersection of culture and trauma has made it difficult for many clinicians to conceptualize and respond appropriately to the oppression-related subtleties that often underpin and undermine effective clinical engagement and treatment. This webinar will identify the critical invisible wounds of sociocultural trauma that affect the everyday lives of Latinx children and families. Specific strategies for addressing the hidden trauma wounds associated with marginalization, oppression, and stigma will be provided. Special attention will be devoted to an examination of critical Self of the Therapist issues that may facilitate or impede effective engagement and treatment with clients.

Why Latinx? 'Latinx' is a term that acknowledges the gender binary inherent in the Spanish language and attempts to be inclusive of the entirety of the gender spectrum. As a result of our targeted audience for our teaching and learning services, El Futuro has decided to use the term 'Latinx' in La Mesita programming. However, we continue to use the terms 'Latino/Latina' in our clinical work. We hold no expectation of other organizations or individuals to make similar linguistic decisions. La Mesita programming aims to improve the mental health of Latinx families across North Carolina. At El Futuro, 70% of our clients qualify as victims of crime according to the Governor’s Crime Commission definition. Because we expect other providers may see similar numbers in the Latinx community in all parts of the state, we seek to build capacity to serve victims of crime, as well as all Latinx families, through our diverse training offerings.
