TIME: Friday, 4:00 to 8:00 P.M. PDT

LOCATION: Westwood Branch Campus; 1145 Gayley Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90024 – Suite 392/393

The workshop focuses on the role of the therapist and the initial interview. It will be conducted entirely in Spanish so that mental health practitioners can learn how to effectively communicate with the Latino population. Nadia Rojas Jones, Ed.D., LMFT, will lead discussions on important cultural values and how to integrate them into the initial interview.

After attending the first of this introductory series, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the role of the therapist when working with the Latino Community and the concept of “visiting” to increase retention in therapy.
  2. Integrate and utilize proper Spanish clinical terminology when conducting an initial assessment with the Latino population.
  3. Compare and contrast cultural differences and Latino American values that might impact mental health services.
  4. Create the most common Department of Mental Health (DMH) intake paperwork using Spanish terminology
