Latinx Immigrants in psychotherapy need to be seen from a strength versus deficit perspective. Across generational differences, there are cultural anchors from the family, spirituality and religion, interdependence, and self-determination that lead to achievements in the midst of adversity. The sociopolitical context and structural barriers to documented and undocumented immigrants need to be recognized as factors of oppression, trauma, and discrimination, yet, Latinx persons persevere for their families, and those they left behind. Because of the Latinx relational orientation, therapists can engage through respectful culture-centered, interpersonal approaches.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Discuss Latinx immigrants’ cultural anchors.
  2. Cite the stages of the migration process.  
  3. Identify three culture-centered techniques to apply in therapy with Latinx immigrants.
