Description

Branch 2 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.

Presenter: Faviola Augustin is a Chicanx - indigena born and raised along the U.S./Mexico border in Somerton, AZ. She is a descendant of Wixarika “Huichol” lineage from Nayarit and Jalisco, Mexico in the Sierra Madre Mountains and central coast regions. Faviola is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker experienced in the intersectional work of community organizing and direct mental health treatment with refugee and undocumented communities impacted by border militarization and immigration policies. This work centers in the systemic and relational trauma on individuals and communities. Her approach to healing is grounded in the belief that our traditional/spiritual practices, collective identities, and relationships help build generational resilience and the ability to thrive.
