Part I of this series will explore the Latino community in the United States today, specifically in the ID/DD community. This discussion will start by dispelling some commonly held myths/ stereotypes while providing information regarding the immigrant experience including the possible trauma that may occur during the acculturation process. The majority of the workshop will entail a discussion on how mental health challenges and barriers can affect the supports and services we provide to people and families who are experiencing mental health and developmental disabilities. Evidence based and best practice interventions such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as extensive case reviews and examples will be explored.
