Coalition Academy, All

Individuals attending this session will gain better understanding of the intricacies of providing prevention services to Latino students.

This session will provide information about identifying and understanding trauma in the Latino community. Many Latino children experience common childhood stressors, but in addition, they also experience stressors specific to their community. These stressors along with education barriers can negatively impact this population’s ability to succeed in school.  Gained knowledge of differences between Latino and mainstream cultures, differences among diverse Latino cultures/countries, and traumas specific to Latino children will offer a framework to provide effective school-based prevention in the Latino community.
