Social Determinants of Latine and Black Mental Health

Marianismo and Machismo in Latine and Black Communities Workshop

 

Gender roles are a strong component of Latino/x relationships and are traditionally upheld through the concepts of Machismo and Marianismo: Latino/x cultural values that describe gendered norms to follow in society. This session considers the social and behavioral effects of marianismo and machismo on ourselves and others.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have

  • Identified attitudes influenced by Marianismo and Machismo in their environment
  • Examined the beneficial and harmful effects of Marianismo and Machismo on mental health
  • Considered how Marianismo and Machismo behaviors affect belonging and acceptance

It’s always good to put a name to things. First time hearing the word Marianismo. Also, hearing the points of views of different people and finding out that they grew up experiencing the same things is also interesting.

Ysabel offered a huge wealth of knowledge on the history of colorism. She was very open, kind, respectful and an effective communicator- speaking AND listening. We had an amazing open space for talking about some really tough subjects.
