Building Upon the Resilience of Hispanic Families During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately impacted Hispanic communities and introduced new challenges to Latino families’ wellbeing. As the nation moves into the recovery phase, what can we learn from research concerning how Latino families are coping, and how can programs build on strengths of Hispanic families to support them now and in the future? The National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families (the Center) presents this research-to-practice webinar recording discussing what research tells us about the resilience of Hispanic families and how programs can build on these strengths to offer a pathway to recovery. Natasha Cabrera, Center co-investigator, shares her latest research on factors that promote resilience in the face of pandemic-related stressors among Hispanic families. She is joined by Abriendo Puertas’ Adrian Pedroza and Family Focus’ Mariana Osoria as they discuss how these findings align with their experience serving Hispanic communities.
