Charissa D. Pizarro, PsyD, RPT Psychological Services LLC Private Practice

Date: November 3, 2023, Noon-1 PM EST/9-10 AM PST

In an era marked by heightened animosity towards unauthorized immigrants in America, harsh immigrant policies contribute to detentions and deportations that result in detrimental consequences (e.g., family separation and compounded trauma), highlighting the need for policymakers and mental health professionals to address the adverse psychological effects with cultural sensitivity.

Join this seminar to learn about the best trauma-informed practices and to achieve the following objectives:

1) Be able to define and understand the concept of cultural competence and cultural humility and well as acknowledge one’s privileges, biases, and cultural values

2) Be able to delineate a hypothetical journey of an immigrant and pinpoint four specific exposures and risks that can affect their mental health before and after entering America

3) Be able to explain how to apply a culturally sensitive and trauma-informed care framework in a case example.
