Training Description

Given the large number of Latino families involved in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems, it’s important to understand them through a cultural lens. Without understanding their history, challenges, and their resilience it’s hard to partner with them. Participants will learn strategies to partner with Latino families so that we can support improve outcomes for system involved Latino youth and families.

Learning Objectives

Participants will:

1. Be able to explain the importance of cultural responsiveness with Latino system involved families

2. Be able to identify one barrier to engaging Latino system involved families

3. Be able to identify at least 1 strategy to engage Latino system involved families
