Trauma-Informed Care Model for Immigrant Hispanic and Latino Clients


The trauma-informed care model acknowledges the prevalence and impact of trauma on clients and the importance of developing culturally responsive mental health services. Latino populations' experiences related to the immigration process prior to, during, and after arriving in the United States could be perceived as traumatic events. This booklet defines main trauma-related concepts and provides key components of Hispanic and Latinx clients' traumatic experiences like trauma-specific treatment services and identifies trauma-related risk factors. Provision and implementation of trauma-informed approaches and trauma-specific treatment services considering the application of cultural elements may increase clients’ engagement, satisfaction, and treatment outcomes.
