In this YouTube video presentation, Martha Hernandez, PhD, describes a theoretical background on common traumas encountered throughout the immigration process to increase understanding about the unique challenges and cultural barriers this population experiences when seeking necessary care. She discusses the application of the APA 2017 Multicultural Guidelines along with family systems theory to address the trauma immigrant families experience. She also provides specific tools and resources to address barriers through use of culturally sensitive systemic clinical practices designed to foster resilience within vulnerable immigrant families and couples.
