Descripción de la Capacitación: Cuando los padres emigran a los Estados Unidos desde otros países, en particular aquellos países afectados por trauma y pobreza, ellos llegan con esperanzas y sueños para un futuro mejor, especialmente para las futuras generaciones. Las familias con raíces cercanas de haber inmigrado esperan que sus hijos tengan un futuro con menos pobreza, trauma y otros retos que los padres pueden haber experimentado en su país de origen. Sin embargo, al criar hijos en los Estados Unidos, pueden experimentar tensión con sus hijos, especialmente en la adolescencia, a medida que los niños aprenden la cultura y las costumbres de los Estados Unidos y continúan negociando los lazos culturales de la etnicidad de sus padres. A menudo, esta tensión afecta la relación entre padres e hijos, lo que empeora aún más los retos típicos que enfrenta el sistema entre padres e hijos que se encuentran en el desarrollo normal de los adolescentes. Los padres y sus hijos pueden no comprender completamente los desafíos de la aculturación, sino que pueden personalizar el conflicto. La familia puede estar en desacuerdo debido a malinterpretar los roles e identidades culturales de los demás. La aculturación no es un proceso lineal y, a menudo, es una historia que solo cuenta cada individuo. Por lo tanto, en la prestación de servicios, es importante que aprendamos cómo ayudar a las familias a navegar este desafío para fortalecer la relación entre padres e hijos y reducir el conflicto / tensión que pueda estar ocurriendo.

 

Descripción de la Capacitación: When parents immigrate to the United States from another country, particular those countries plagued with trauma and poverty, they often arrive with hopes and dreams for a better future, especially for generations to come. Families with recent immigrant roots often hope that their children will have a future with less poverty, trauma, and other challenges that parents may have experienced in their country of origin. However, upon raising children in the United States, they may experience tension with their children, particularly in the adolescent years, as children learn the culture and customs of the United States and they continue to negotiate the cultural ties of their parents’ ethnicity. Often this tension impacts the parent-child relationship which further exacerbates typical challenges faced in the parent-child system found in normal adolescent development. Parents and their children may not fully comprehend the challenges of acculturation, rather they may personalize the conflict. The family may be at odds due to misunderstanding each other’s cultural roles and identities. Acculturation is not a linear process and it often is a story told only by each individual. Therefore, in service delivery, it is important that we learn how to support families in navigating this challenge in order to strengthen the parent-child relationship and reduce the conflict/tension that may be occurring.
