Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The authors seek to provide a more holistic, compassionate, and liberatory understanding of Latinx families. This chapter will highlight the importance of understanding families from a historical, culturally centered manner that honors their layered experiences of contextual factors, intergenerational trauma, and strengths-based approach. This chapter seeks to honor ethnic heterogeneity and cultural strengths and expand the notion of what consists of the family constellation. In doing so, the chapter will focus on central aspects of la familia, including child development, parenting, and recommendations focused on engaging Latinx families and improving the assessment and family interventions.
