Refugee Mental Health and Complex Trauma
February 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm
This introductory-level workshop will describe common stressors, adjustment difficulties, and behavioral health concerns experienced by refugees who have been forcibly displaced from their home countries due to persecution, armed conflict, and/or war. This training will describe behavioral health assessment and treatment services offered within an interdisciplinary Immigrant & Refugee Health Clinic serving patients from Bhutan, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Eritrea, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, among other countries. In addition, evidence-based treatments adapted for refugee populations will be described within an integrative framework for treating complex trauma and depression in vulnerable populations. Clinical discussion and case examples will be used to illustrate cultural adaptations and challenges that may be useful to consider when working with refugee populations.
