The Hispanic population is now the largest ethnic minority group within the United States, and now, more than ever, this steadily growing population is seeking out the help of mental health professionals. The unfortunate truth is that most clinicians don’t know
enough about Hispanic culture—and variations within it—to effectively treat these clients, especially with issues related to death, dying and bereavement.
Join Ligia M. Houben, MA, FT, FAAGC, CPC, author of Counseling Hispanics Through Loss, Grief, and Bereavement: A Guide for Mental Health Professionals, and she’ll share valuable information on how to help Hispanic people heal after loss.
Ligia will present losses that this population has experienced as a culture and walk you through tools you can use to address grief and loss with your clients. Far from focusing on death-related loss, this seminar includes other losses not currently acknowledged by professionals working with Hispanic people living in the United States.
You’ll gain new insight into the unique cultural and generational needs of Hispanic immigrants, and you’ll have the skills you need to identify the physical, emotional, social and spiritual manifestations of grief in this growing population. You’ll finish this program with new tools that you can use to address the multiple losses experienced by what is now the largest ethnic minority group in the United States.
