Leading experts in the field will discuss the varied approaches to working with survivors of torture and trauma in the following domains: Medical, Psychiatric, Psychological, Expressive Arts, Social Services, Legal and Spiritual.

This program has been approved by the Louisiana State Board of Social Work Examiners for 9.25 hours of continuing education credit for social workers through Tulane School of Social Work.

Working with survivors of torture and trauma is full of challenges, but there is a growing body of evidence that there is a wide array of responses that can be incorporated into day-to-day programming. As providers, we have a responsibility to be aware of what is working for our colleagues and clients in the field. Not only is it imperative for direct services, it also informs advocacy efforts, grant proposals and community, regional, and national responses to the refugee, asylum seeker, and asylee experience. Social workers, psychologists, lawyers, doctors, ESL teachers, therapists, refugee groups working with refugees, asylum seekers, and similar vulnerable populations are encouraged to attend. This conference is funded by the United States’ Office of Refugee Resettlement.
