About the Event

"New Latinx Liberation: Transforming Theory Into Action"

1.5 CE Credits will be offered for LPC, LMFT, SW, and Psychologists - NBCC Approved

Presented by: Brenda Barajas-Koch

Date: March 10th, 2023

Time: 11:30am - 1:00pm CST

Location: Webinar Via Zoom

Cost: Free (This training is supported by Award No. 3012705 by the Texas Office of the Governor and Violence Against Women Act Fund.)

"New Latinx Liberation: Transforming Theory Into Action" tackles some of the most impactful social phenomena that are relevant to Latin-American populations (such as machismo and marianismo) and the myriad ways they shape the cultural perspectives of both perpetrators and survivors of interpersonal violence.  While acknowledging and exploring the effects of these points of view, this presentation will also consider the complex systems of oppression (and their historical throughlines) that perpetuate crime and victimization while stifling efforts to support survivors within these minoritized communities.  The goal, then, of this presentation is to offer new avenues of hope by reexamining a diverse array of scholars, poets, activists (Gloria Anzaldúa, bell hooks, Gwendolyn Brooks, among others) and wring from their rich words of liberation strategies and tools that are accessible for bystanders, prevention, and helping professionals in our effort to eliminate interpersonal violence within Latinx communities.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand relevant social phenomena (e.g., machismo and marianismo) and other root causes of interpersonal violence
  • Increase awareness of issues affecting Latinx victims of interpersonal violence
  • Advocate for actionable community engagement practices
  • Encourage effective, trauma-informed communication strategies with survivors, emphasizing bystander interventions

If you register for this training, you must attend for the entire training.

*Partial CEs will not be provided.*

Leaving the training early will count as a No Show.
