Dímelo en Español: Collaborative Therapeutic Conversations with Latino Immigrant Families

As the Latino population in New York and in the entire country continues to grow, therapists need to work from a multicultural framework that embraces a deeper understanding of the Latino immigrant experience. It is fundamental for therapists to cultivate a compassionate understanding of the Latino youth experience in relation to their families, their sense of self and their socio-cultural contexts. Dímelo en Español is committed to exploring the unique dilemmas of first and second generation Latino youth and their families. Using cultural humility and a collaborative stance, the presenters will clarify the concerns that bring families to therapy, unpack the meanings attached to the family’s migration narratives and help families discern the challenges of parenting and being parented in a bilingual/bicultural environment.
