Trauma, Legal Channels, and Forensic Evaluations for Immigrant Survivors: Save a Life and Do What You Know How to Do

Are you searching for ways to use your professional skills to give back to the community in 2017? Join NASW Houston for an introduction to working with survivors of violence who are applying for immigration relief based on traumatic experiences such domestic violence, sexual violence, female genital mutilation/cutting, and forced marriage. Social workers play an important role as experts in the field of trauma and the impact it has on immigrant survivors. You have the power to save a life by evaluating courageous survivors and presenting a report to immigration officials both in and outside of the court system. Come learn about the legal systems at play, the role of an expert evaluator, and the clinical tools and strategies you will use to evaluate clients.
