Given that trauma exposure among youth, particularly those from communities of color, is high, there is a dire need to improve trauma-focused treatment for young people of color. Growing research has documented that integrating cultural and telehealth considerations into trauma-focused treatment can enhance treatment engagement and lead to positive treatment outcomes. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how to incorporate cultural and telehealth considerations concurrently to enhance treatment engagement for Latinx youth and their caregivers. Specifically, we describe the process of delivering Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) to three trauma-exposed Latinx youths through the use of telehealth technology. Clinical recommendations are discussed to improve treatment engagement of Latinx youth and other young people of color.
