Preferred registration deadline: February 28th

With ongoing armed conflict in various corners of the world and extreme poverty in other areas, the US has a steady flow of refugee and immigrant populations who often are in need of social support or mental health services.
This class will help advance your cultural competency and context knowledge for working with refugee and immigrant populations in a variety of social service and mental health settings. You will gain insights and tools for enriching the supportive interactions with these vulnerable individuals and enhancing your effectiveness. Trauma and crisis counseling tools will be shared. Review of real case scenarios will allow us to discuss best practices.

This class meets the Illinois licensure requirement for 3 hours of continuing education in cultural competence.
General Admission: $60**

Class size is limited to 45.
