Workshop description:

Grounded in principles of social justice and aligned with Saybrook's mission and responsiveness to current national and global events, this one-day professional workshop is a collaboration with the California Psychological Association. The morning panelists will discuss their experiences and implications for practice when addressing immigration issues and disaster relief efforts. Specifically, the findings from the reactivated CPA Immigration Task Force will be reported. The afternoon will include two skill-building interactive workshops focused on immigration and working with vulnerable populations; each designed to support practitioners from varied disciplines in integrating practical skills into their work. The workshop is open to the general public and all Saybrook faculty, staff, and students. Continuing education credits will be available, independent of the RC registration.
