Familism in Latine and Black Communities Workshop

Significant attention to family obligation can often be seen in Latine and Black culture due to Familism. This obligation includes a high level of respect and social emotional support undertaken across generations. In this session, we will consider the impact of familism by exploring the harmful and beneficial experiences connected to these values.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have

  • Defined Familism in the context of Latine and Black culture
  • Explored the advantages and disadvantages of upholding Familism values in our daily lives 
  • Considered the mental health effects of balancing family values in the individualist culture of the U.S. versus the collectivist culture in Latin American and La Diaspora
