Understanding the Immigration Process and Supporting Immigrant Families through Traumatic Experiences

Formerly titled: Understanding the Immigration Process and Supporting Immigrant Families through their Traumatic Experiences. This is a 2 day webinar and registrants must attend both days. Immigrants experience trauma on their journey arriving and settling in the United States. They experience stress related to acculturation, discrimination, employment, legal status and potential deportation, language acquisition, and separation from family and community of origin. Immigrants also experience loss of family, friends, professional status, language, culture, and sense of belonging. This workshop reviews the immigration process, traumatic experiences associated with immigration, and common issues such as family separation and reattachment. It will provide a trauma-focused lens for working with this population. Techniques to engage and work with immigrants are discussed throughout the workshop.

This webinar does not have any offerings for this semester.
