Presented by: Jerry Tello and Juan Gomez of the National Compadres Network
Webinar date: Tuesday, February 26, 2013 1:30 pm Eastern Standard Time (New York, GMT-05:00)
The National Compadres Network (NCN) will present an overview and dialogue focused on the core tenets and origins of a Brown Paper: Lifting Latinos Up By Their Rootstraps: Moving Beyond Trauma Through A Healing-Informed Framework for Latino Boys and Men. The dialogue includes an ethnographic analysis of the efficacy of La Cultura Cura or Transformational Healing. The webinar also explores how NCN’s healing-informed framework and cultural teachings led to the design and implementation of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Evidenced-Based Practice: Joven Noble developed by Jerry Tello.
