This proposed program will provide an opportunity for Latino immigrant parents to strengthen and establish their social connection with their school-age children. It will provide assistance to parents on engagement instruments in healthy communication within family members, psychoeducation addressing social and emotional needs for children and themselves and developing healthy coping skills to improve social connection.
