Ending Chancla Culture: Reframing Latinx Family Traditions Towards the Preservation of Culture and Resilience for Bicultural Children & Families

3.0 CE | Workshop

This presentation will be a thorough discourse of the present well-being of an ever-expanding and evolving Latinx family demographic within this country: Latin American origin families. These include immigrant parents, first and second generation U.S. born Latinx self-identified parents, and their children. We will uncover consistent themes in the research such as intergenerational Latinx parenting practices and how these are affected by cultural values and traditional social constructs. Discussed will be how those values may very well be used as protective agents against acculturative stress and therein a range of social-emotional adjustment outcomes for both parents and their children.
