At Home, But Not Welcome: Frameworks to Use When Working With Undocumented Latino Patients & Families

Presented by Martha Saucedo 

Wednesday, December 12, 2018 at 2 EST 

*CE credit is available for the webinar! You can find more information by clicking the "Register Here" button below* 


When a Latino patient is affected by the prevailing immigration environment, he or she struggles with more than legal issues. Cultural issues are significant, including distrust of the medical and educational system, community supports, and ultimately the patient–provider relationship. These issues can leave Latino patients feeling isolated and traumatized. This session will focus on working with patients, their families, and other agencies to provide comprehensive treatment approaches in integrated and non-integrated settings.

Webinar Objectives: 

  • Describe the different aspects of social, mental, behavioral, and community life that an immigrant patient faces when presenting with mental health concerns. 

  • Explain strategies to use in the Primary Care Behavioral Health model and non-integrated settings when working with Latino patients to improve functioning.

  • Apply methods to empower Latino patients by coordinating with key community agencies and commonly available supports.
