Descripción de la Capacitación

Brindar terapia familiar a las familias que han sufrido traumas durante generaciones puede ser un desafío e impacto tanto para las familias como para los proveedores. Antes de que se llevara a cabo la terapia familiar, es posible que las familias hayan experimentado mucho trauma en sus vidas igual que servicios que pueden no haber sido accesibles o que se hayan realizado de manera deficiente. Pero, también, tenemos que considerar que las familias puedan sobrevivir en un estado de crisis actual. La mayoría de las veces, para poder ser efectivos con familias que han experimentado tales traumas, pérdidas y otros desafíos bio-psicosociales, es importante priorizar el compromiso para generar confianza y trabajar para proporcionar experiencias de sanación y conexiones para las familias. Esta capacitación se enfoca en construir una base para aprender formas efectivas de entender los desafíos que enfrentan las familias que han experimentado desafíos sociopolíticos y de trauma, así como aprender formas de involucrarse y brindar servicios informados y culturalmente receptivos.


Objetivos de Aprendizaje:

1. Revise los desafíos comunes para involucrar a las familias en comunidades que tienen un historial de experiencias de trauma, opresión y racismo.

2. Identificar formas de involucrar a las familias y construir una alianza positiva en terapia familiar, incluso a través de prácticas informadas sobre el trauma y prácticas culturalmente receptivas.

3. Revisar estrategias para abordar los desafíos complejos que las familias pueden estar experimentando debido a la historia de trauma, opresión y racismo.


Training Description

Providing family therapy to families that have experienced generations of trauma can be challenging as well as impactful for both the families and providers. Prior to family therapy taking place, families may have experienced much trauma in their lives, services that may have not been accessible or poorly delivered, and families may be surviving in a current crisis state. Most often, to be able to be effective with families that have experienced such trauma, loss, and other bio-psychosocial challenges, it is important to prioritize engagement to build trust and work towards providing healing experiences and connections for families. This training focuses onbuilding a foundation in learning effective ways to understand the challenges faced by families who have experienced trauma and sociopolitical challenges as well as learn ways to engage and provide services in a trauma informed and culturally responsive manner.
