**Please note that the day listed on the brochure should be Tuesday, not Wednesday**

This workshop will focus on knowledge, culturally sensitive skills, and values essential to social work practice with Latino/as in the U.S. The workshop provides an introduction to the historical, social, and psychological processes that impact Latino/a adults, children, and families.

Participants will apply skills and strategies integral to providing services, including multisystemic ecological approaches and professional helping skills, which affirm the dignity and worth of the individual and emphasize the importance of relational approaches with Latino individuals and families.

Objectives

1. Introduction to the diversity of the U.S. Latino/a population in Massachusetts and demographics.
2. Integrate into practice Latino/a cultural values that contribute to engagement with providers based on perspectives of Latino individuals and families.
3. Learn strategies for fostering culturally-sensitive engagement, assessment, and interventions, for Latino children, youth, adults, and families.
