  • Afghan Asylum Screening and The Trauma-Informed Approach

    This training is designed to prepare you to screen AUW Afghan student service seekers for asylum. You have a script to use to conduct the screenings. Rather than review the script in great detail, we will use this time to provide a basic overview of the trauma-informed approach, as we anticipate that these service seekers will be survivors of trauma. As we review the trauma-informed approach, we will weave in examples of how the screening process and script incorporate sensitivity to trauma. We will also address cultural humility in general and provide some cultural background relevant to this service seeker population. With the skills and information you will learn in this training, and the substantive knowledge of the asylum process provided in the previous training, you will be prepared to provide trauma-informed, culturally humble asylum screening for this community.

  • Tahirih Pro Bono: Afghan Asylum Training

    Please join us on November 9, 2021, to learn about the legal limbo facing arriving Afghan refugees and how you can help. After providing a real-time snapshot of the legal context, we will review the law of asylum with a special focus on cases involving gender-based persecution. The training will be presented by Tahirih Justice Center supervising attorney Sasha Bershad and CEO Archi Pyati.

    Tahirih is national non-profit providing free legal and social services to immigrants fleeing gender-based violence. In September, Tahirih launched a national helpline for arriving Afghan refugees and has since been providing support, information, referrals, and advocacy. This training will give you the tools and understanding to be a part of this response.
