Latinx Child, Adolescent, & Family Psychology

Chair: Omar Gudiño, PhD, Universityof Denver, [email protected]

The Latinx Child, Adolescent, & Family Psychology SIG is a network of NLPA members interested in exchanging ideas about issues and research related to Latinx children, adolescents, and families. Latinx youth represent the fastest growing segment of theU.S.population and it is important to advance our understanding of the strengths, challenges, and needs of this group. In addition to improving our understanding of this group, it is essential that this knowledge is used in the service of promoting positive youth development and advocating for the mental health and educational needs of youth. This SIG seeks to 1) create a forum for sharing and discussing issues related to Latinx youth and families, 2) facilitate the dissemination of research related to this population, 3) promote awareness and advocate for issues of special significance to Latinx youth, and 4) foster professional relationships among NLPA members who study and serve this population.
