This webinar presents the plight of Central American children and parents who spent time in immigration detention centers after fleeing their countries and transiting through Mexico. The effects of the family detention and separation are discussed in the context of the effects on children’s attachment reactions and family reunification. Interventions and services for these children and families after their release are discussed. Warning: The webinar includes pictures and videos of violence and children’s reactions to separation that may be disturbing to some viewers.

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.
