Description

This presentation will focus on how identity, family & spirituality collectively contribute to many Latinx clients’ well-being and mental health. Participants will learn how to be responsive to each in clinical practice. In describing how to center ethnic identity, the “broaching race in counseling” framework will be used to bring forth a culturally relevant sense of well-being. The Individualistic/Collectivistic Values Continuum (Zamarripa) will be used to bring forth familial strengths that can facilitate healthy connectedness to both family and community. Using the framework of Latinx indigenous spirituality, we will draw on basic concepts of forgiveness, faith, and hope to connect with a culturally relevant sense of well-being. In addition, we will discuss the therapeutic value of mesoamerican folk healing (i.e. curanderismo) and its current relevance for the Latinx community
