Awake, Alert and Aware: Improving Latinx services begins with Me
What does it mean to be a member of the Latinx community? This workshop encourages participants to examine cultural biases and assumptions that can contribute to treating a community of individuals as “other,” including when this stance comes from a place of ethical compassion. Ivy Hooper will draw from her extensive practice with members of the Latinx community and share powerful observations of unique strengths and challenges within its members. She will also emphasize the multiplicity of experiences within this community, diverse in: language, heritage, citizenship, nationality, ethnicity, race, residency, generation, as well as layers of individual experience. Participants will also engage in practices of self-examination and a nonjudgmental stance that applies more broadly to working with the diversity of individuals outside of the dominant paradigm.
