Presenter Lu Rocha will provide a brief overview of the Latino culture, migration history and the current condition of Latinos. Participants will become familiar with domestic violence (DV) and other forms of gender-based violence within the Latino community. Rocha will share lessons learned from her experience of working with the Latino community and from her book, Nuestras Historias/Our Stories: a compilation of true stories of Latinas who have experienced gender-based violence. Participants will gain knowledge of the culture, be able to identify the types of abuse a survivor may experience, and the effects. Participants will be able to articulate barriers, red flags (warning signs), and possible cultural explanations for a survivor’s behavior. By the end of the workshop, participants will learn best practices when serving Latina survivors and improved advocacy techniques. Finally, participants will be able to use information from this workshop to better serve the Latino community.
