¡Vamos Hablar con la Verdad! - Facilitating Culturally Sensitive Conversations about Illness and Death in a Latino Population
In the Latino culture it is often taboo to talk about sex, suicide, and death. A high percentage of Latinos practice Christianity and their level of faith often predicts the decision-making process of managing a terminal illness. This workshop will discuss how Latino cultural norms influence communicating, managing, planning, and preparing for the end of life and how to apply cultural interventions and channel their faith and spiritually to experience a good death.
