Description:     Training in New York, NY, for licensed medical and mental health professionals interested 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 volunteers serve as expert witnesses and are required 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 credits.

 

Who should attend: Physicians and mental health professionals (clinical social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists) licensed to practice in the United States.
