When Monsters Live with Us: Reflections on the Impact of the Intersection of Structural Inequities, COVID-19, and Intimate Partner Violence in Young Children in Latin American Families
Based on a framing that integrates social justice, diversity, and trauma-informed practices, this webinar will provide an overview of the impact of the intersection of structural inequities and the pandemic on children from zero to five years in Latin American families. Intimate partner violence will be addressed in this context, as well as its implications from the perspective of the young child, caregiver/parent and attachment relationships. Support/intervention strategies based on relationship, development and socio-cultural context will be discussed to promote security, stabilization, restoration of attachment relationships and protection factors in these families. Considerations at the level of advocacy and public policy will also be discussed. A combination of teaching presentation, case vignettes, and group reflection will be used to discuss the material.
This session is part of a series led by the MHTTC Network in partnership with the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN).
Certificates of attendance are provided to all who attend at least 50% (30 minutes) of the live webinar. CEUs are not available for this session.
