Latino Culture and Communication, More Than Just Translation - Two Part Webinar - May 9th and May 16th

When working with Hispanic and Latino populations, clear language should never be a linear process, particularly for a collectivist society that defines and interprets experiences, environment, and even words used within a cultural context. Latino values such as, ‘machismo and personalismo,’ have their own connotations, and can be insightful. But when they are singularly defined and understood through an American perspective, we wonder why we feel a ‘disconnect’ with the Hispanic client/patient we’re tasked to provide services to. This interactive presentation will inform on research identified Hispanic and Latino cultural values and how they translate in communication for individuals with substance use and/or mental health problems. The content will also include strategies to support, “recuperación,” (recovery), for members of these communities.
