Workshop DescriptionThis course will strengthen practitioners’ preparedness to work effectively with clients who are immigrants and refugees. The course will focus on the psychological strain stemming from the complex, multiple psychosocial adjustments and disparities associated with the processes of migration and resettlement. Acculturation, acculturative stress and their potential adverse impacts on clients’ well-being will be highlighted. Practice skills, professional values and ethics, and theoretical concepts and strategies for assessment will be discussed. Some of the content of this course could also be applicable in social work practice with diverse, oppressed, and marginalized populations.
