Event Description

Developing evidence-based programs that are in harmony with the culture of its participants are challenging to design, implement, and evaluate. This webinar will include a discussion on the use and application of evidence-based programs (EBPs) with racially/ethnically diverse populations, including potential challenges when making cultural adaptations. We will also explore the use of practice-based programs and the role that evaluation plays. With the increased emphasis on the use of EBPs within the behavioral health field, it is important to understand organizations’ experiences and understanding of EBPs with the populations they serve. A Latino youth serving organization will share their experiences with EBPs and their challenges in finding programs that meet the needs of the Latino immigrant families they serve. They will share the steps taken to develop, implement, and evaluate their own practice-based program, a trauma-informed Family Reunification and Strengthening Program for Latino families who have experienced immigration-related family separations. The main goal of the program is to help families understand that perceived, incompatible differences can and should be overcome to ensure healthy youth development and family stability. We will present a framework identifying the key issues in developing culturally responsive programs, followed by presentations and discussion among the panelists. 

Panelists: Marcella Hurtado Gómez, Managing Associate, Community Science Carolyn Camacho, Director of Youth Centers, Identity Inc. Ligia Gómez, Case Manager/ Facilitator, Identity Inc. Tomás Rodríguez, Family Reunification Lead Facilitator/ Coordinator, Identity Inc. Diego Uriburu, Executive Director, Identity Inc.
