New Frameworks to Build and Sustain Programs

For significant numbers of survivors of torture, challenges with integrating in the United States are as much a presenting concern in treatment as is the trauma associated with torture in their country of origin. Equally important, for significant numbers of torture treatment programs, diversification of funding and developing mainstream partnerships are the key to program sustainability. During this session, Paul Stein will discuss the longitudinal research project on refugee integration that he has coordinated. He will also discuss his current work focusing on asset development for refugees and immigrants, which utilizes an anchor institution framework. Participants in this session will gain a deeper understanding of the interaction and initial quantification of integration domains, as well as the potential for new program designs and funding partnerships by using an anchor institution framework.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understanding the interaction and initial quantification of integration domains
  2. Understanding the potential for new program designs and funding partnerships by using an anchor institution framework
