Latino Culture & Communication, More than Just Translation (9/15/23)

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 within a cultural context. Latino values such as "machismo" and "personalismo" can be very insightful, but when defined and understood through an American perspective, we wonder why we feel a "disconnect’" with the Hispanic client/patient we need to provide services to.

This interactive presentation will inform on Latino cultural nuances that can reframe communication for Hispanic individuals with substance use and/or mental health problems and discuss prevention strategies to support “recuperación” (recovery).
