Culturally Responsive TF-CBT via Telehealth for Latinx Youth and Families

Presented by Juventino Hernandez Rodriguez, PhD; and Bianca T. Villalobos, PhD University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley.

Join us for a webinar on May 20, 2022 at 12:00 PM EDT.

Culturally responsive treatment can help reduce disparities by increasing acceptability and meaningfulness of treatment for youth and families of color. In addition, telehealth has emerged as a promising model to bridge the gap between evidence-based treatment and access to services for underserved populations. This webinar will focus on integrating cultural and telehealth considerations into trauma-focused treatment for Latinx youth and their families. In particular, recommendations will be provided for enhancing treatment engagement in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and guidelines will be reviewed to help clinicians with widespread and inclusive implementation of TF-CBT.

After this session, participants will be able to:
1. Identify common telehealth implementation barriers and the research support behind using telehealth with Latinx youth and families.
2. Describe at least five ways to adapt traditional CBT practices to a telehealth format for Latinx youth and families.
3. Describe how to incorporate cultural considerations to enhance treatment engagement for Latinx youth and families.
