Faculty from the CMHC program at Antioch, along with local community partners, will comprise the panel and share experiences and best-practices in working with and supporting immigrant families, those who are undocumented, and/or those who would have qualified for protection under the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors act (DREAM) families/individuals in counseling and counseling-related contexts.
The panelists will introduce therapeutic models for individuals and families who may experience cultural or personal barriers to traditional counseling, effective supports and interventions, and partnership with community and outreach. Discussions will include multicultural awareness and culturally sensitive approach in serving this population. The seminar format will provide an opportunity to ask questions of the panel, as well as speak together in a round table/small-group format.
