Part Two of “Go Back to Your Country:” Discussions on Discrimination to Build Resilience in the Latinx Community

 

Description:

Join us for this free webinar! Given both the current socio-political climate and requests for additional time with Dr. Livas-Stein, we’ve decided to offer a part two to our initial May webinar on discrimination within the Latinx community. We will be continuing our discussion on how to address issues of racism in therapy with Latinx clients. Dr. Livas-Stein will present the latest research and practical interventions for addressing within-group discrimination and colorism, building up ethnic identity, and having discussions around racism with Latinx clients in the current socio-political climate. We invite you to join us for an interactive webinar discussion using case vignettes to illustrate these important topics.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will:

  • Identify at least one protective coping strategy that Latinx clients can use to cope with discrimination
  • Understand the impacts of within-group discrimination on the Latinx community
  • Increase familiarity with how to initiate the discussions about race with Latinx clients

 

Presenter:

Gabriela Stein, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology within the Department of Psychology at UNCG. She also holds a faculty position with the Center for Developmental Science at UNC Chapel Hill. Dr. Stein received her doctoral degree in clinical psychology with a specialization in child and family psychology from UNC Chapel Hill. She completed her predoctoral clinical internship at University of California, San Diego/VA Consortium followed by a postdoctoral fellowship position at Duke University. Broadly, her research uses developmental psychopathology and cultural-ecological frameworks to investigate the impact of culturally relevant factors on the development of psychopathology for ethnic minority samples.

Dr. Stein’s program of research revolves around three themes: (1) understanding the role of familial cultural values in Latinx families and their impact on the development of Latinx youth, (2) identifying individual risk and protective processes for Latinx and other ethnic minority youth when facing cultural stressors (e.g., discrimination, acculturative stress), and (3) improving mental health treatment access for Latinx families in community mental health. Additionally, Dr. Stein is co-investigator of a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration graduate training grant for culturally competent care for underserved populations, and a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute grant addressing disparities in Latinx families.
