Description:
 

Training in Baltimore, MD, for licensed medical and mental health professionals interested in volunteering to evaluate people who are seeking asylum and other immigration reliefs in the United States based on claims of having survived torture, and provide affidavits to be used as expert evidence in immigration proceedings.

Human Rights Clinic requires volunteers to attend a half-day training, which will provide prospective volunteers with an understanding of the asylum process in the United States, prepare them to evaluate the effects of torture on survivors, address the importance of writing effective affidavits and connect clients to culturally appropriate community services. The training is free of charge, and we offer CME and CE credits in psychology.
