Branch2 Brown Bag and CEU/Networking Event with In-Person and Remote Attendance Options:

Using trauma-informed and strength-based models in supporting Latinx undocumented communities

Please join NASW AZ Chapter for an informative and important training opportunity for individuals working with Latinx undocumented communities. Through the presentation, we will identify the current work being done in Southern, AZ that addresses the migration of our relatives and friends from Mexico and Central America. We will learn to recognize structural inequities and mental health disparities that impact mental health determinants of Latinx community. Our hope is that you will have a greater understanding the intersection of trauma and migration through a culturally grounded lens. We will also discuss ways to build upon the resilience of migrants, asylees and refugees through strength-based and trauma-informed models.
