Webinar: Cultural Elements with Hispanic Adolescents (Part 2)

Hispanic, Latino, and Latinx adolescents in the US tend to grow up with intersecting Latino and American cultures and other influencing factors. Addressing maladaptive behavior with Latinx youth encourages a culturally informed approach that integrates an ecological understanding of their world, which tend to include family structure, adolescent development stages, peer pressure.

• Engaging and screening Hispanic and Latinx adolescents for substance use and mental health
• Promoting recovery using elements of Hispanic culture
• Evidence based practices versus culturally sensitive services
• Strategies and program elements that can improve the quality of mental health services for Latino youth and their families

Goal: To provide participants with insight as to how various aspects of culture and adolescent development stages intersect for Hispanic, Latino and Latinx teens; and strategies to help address substance use and other maladaptive behavior and promote recovery.
