CV

I am committed to the overall well-being of immigrant Latino families locally, nationally and internationally. I am invested in developing and implementing prevention programs for immigrant Latina women who experience complex trauma such as domestic violence, sexual abuse, and forced family separation due to immigration status. Our profession values the dignity and worth of all persons, especially those who are marginalized and oppressed in our respective communities.

  • Effective delivery of mental health services for the Latino population
  • Bilingual Spanish-English social workers
  • Culturally sensitive programs for immigrant Latina women in group settings

The purpose of this course is to engage directly with scholarly activities such as writing for publication, peer-review, and ongoing assessment of a scholarship agenda as the grounding for a student's development of an identity as a scholar. The work of this course is grounded in the student’s Banded Dissertation Plan. Strategies and techniques for establishing, improving and maintaining types of scholarly activities are examined, discussed and implemented. Emphasis in this course is on the development and creation of a ready to submit for publication article.
