Workshop Description

Few therapists realize that by providing assessments for immigration legal cases, we can help families stay together and help refugees get asylum. Plus, with reliable referral streams from immigration lawyers, therapists can also create sustainable practices. There is a huge need for these mental health assessments, and it’s surprisingly easy to get started. There is no need to have a doctorate, be bilingual, or have any specialized experience. With the right training, therapists can easily learn how to apply their skills to the unique needs of immigration cases. This webinar outlines the steps a therapist can take to make a powerful difference in the lives of immigrants, while creating a thriving and meaningful private practice. 


Learning Objectives

After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the three most common types of immigration cases.
  • Understand how a clinical evaluation can provide evidence for an immigration case.
  • Identify basic differences between an asylum case and an extreme hardship case.
  • Identify potential benefits to adding immigration evaluations to private practice work and ways to get started providing immigration evaluations

This workshop is approved for 1.0 continuing education credit hours.
