Immigrant Families’ Resilience Through Adversity Date & Time

Immigrant Families Resilience Through Adversity
July 20th – Virtual Training – 11:00am – 12pm Central Time
There are over 40 million immigrants living in the United States of America (Budiman, 2020). As the country with more immigrants than any other country in the world (Davis, 2023), it is likely that we are either immigrants ourselves or that we would encounter an immigrant in our personal and professional lives. During this one-hour workshop on “Immigrant Families: Resilience through Adversity” we will discuss the unique challenges faced by immigrant families and the factors that contribute to their resilience. Additionally, we will discuss strategies to support the resilience of immigrant families, including ways to promote cultural awareness, foster social connections, and address mental health concerns.
1. Discuss the several types of immigration in the United States of America.
2. Explore the unique challenges faced by immigrant families.
3. Discuss strategies to support the resilience of immigrant families, including ways to foster social connections, and address mental health concerns.
