Event Description

Overview: This workshop will introduce to participants the "why and how" to conduct support groups with Latino immigrant youth who enter the United States by crossing the border. Many, if not most of these immigrants have similar experiences that impact their emotional and behavioral health such as the stressors and/or traumas of their native country to include killings, sexual violence, domestic abuse, the takeover of gang life, extortion, etc. and their arduous journey through Central America, Mexico and crossing the Rio Grande.Overview: This workshop will introduce to participants the "why and how" to conduct support groups with Latino immigrant youth who enter the United States by crossing the border. Many, if not most of these immigrants have similar experiences that impact their emotional and behavioral health such as the stressors and/or traumas of their native country to include killings, sexual violence, domestic abuse, the takeover of gang life, extortion, etc. and their arduous journey through Central America, Mexico and crossing the Rio Grande.
The impact of being caught by ICE and being sent to a detention center also may leave emotional scars. Once they are reunited with their families, they must adjust to these changes and to a new culture, language and school system. All of these changes can leave a youth with limited coping skills, heightened depression and anxiety. 
These common experiences makes for conducting an immigrant support group easier and the most efficient modality to support as many youth as possible during their transition to a new country. The presenter will briefly cover the three main areas that impact Latino immigrant youth: "Pre-migration, Migration and Post-migration" and how these topics are incorporated into group activities. Once these areas are understood by the participants, they can better understand the purpose of each activity. 
For example, the first ice breaker activity which is used for bonding has each member make a name plate with their name, country's name and a drawing of their respective flag and they can add anything of interest to them. This activity is non- threatening, simple and fun. Once the name plate is complete they take turns introducing themselves with this information. The leader can then interject other relevant questions to maintain the conversation in a positive tone. 
Like in most initial groups, the leader discusses the topic of group rules allowing the members to add or reword rules that they deem important to the group's stability and functioning. It is important that everyone agrees with the rules as this will set the stage for bonding as well. Activities on acculturation, cultural bereavement and cultural differences are critical in helping members understand and validate their longing to return to their native country and that this is the first process of immigrating to a new environment. 
Another major issue that many of immigrant youth experience is the reunification of the family. Many youth were left behind in their native country while their parents immigrated to the United States.
