Program Level: Introductory

This 4-session training it the second level of the Chicana/o/x Affirmative Therapy Training Series. Each session is 2.5 hours and will contain two case scenarios each session. In particular, Level 2 will dive deeper into the three crucial aspects of Chicana/o/x & Latina/o/x well-being and mental health: Identity, Family, & Spirituality. Participants will learn how to be responsive to each in clinical practice. Further, the impact of historical & intergenerational racial trauma will be explored and approaches to be responsive during clinical practice will be outlined. 

As a result of participating, the attendee will be able to:

  1. Identify varying notions of mental well-being from a Chicana/o/x perspective

  2. Describe how a focus on identity, family, and spirituality are key in a Chicanx Affirmative

  3.  Describe a Collectivistic Sense of Self to facilitate centering ethnic identity in practice.

  4. Describe the foundations and principles of a Chicana/o/x Affirmative Therapy        

  5. Identify the 4 levels of the Broaching Race in Counseling framework from a Chicana/o/x Affirmative perspective.

  6. Identify at least 2 historical and contemporary Chicanx cultural resources to address manifestations of traumatic responses.

  7. Using the Individualistic/Collectivistic Values Continuum we will identify at least 3 cultural values and degrees of adherence to traditionalism.

  8. Using the framework of Chicanx Indigenous Spirituality, we will describe how the concepts of forgiveness, faith, and hope to connect with a culturally relevant sense of wellbeing.

  9. Describe the therapeutic value of the indigenous/ancestral concepts of the Four Elements and the similarities between this spiritual concept and mental health.

*Program content focuses on application of psychological assessment and/or intervention methods that have overall consistent and credible empirical support in the contemporary peer reviewed scientific literature beyond those publications and other types of communications devoted primarily to the promotion of the approach.
