Webinar: Addressing the Needs of Serving Unaccompanied Immigrant Minors 
Thursday, January 22, 2015 (12-1:30 pm PT)

"

Presenters: Marta Casas, LMHC, Child Witness to Violence Project; Meagan Mooney, PhD, DePelchin Chil­dren’s Center; Carmen Rosa Norona, LCSW, Child Witness to Violence Project; Cathi Tillman, LSW,

Together, CWLA and the NCTSN are excited to offer this upcoming webinar addressing the overall mental health and trauma needs of young children and youth that come to the United States unaccompanied. The recent growth in the number of minors that have been placed in sponsor homes throughout the country has further increased the gap in available and appropriate services. Presenters will share examples of culturally and linguistically competent interventions to respond to the needs of these youth and families that sponsor them. Presenters will also provide resources and information on available training that can help communities and providers better serve this population"

Panelists will provide specific suggestions for local advocacy on behalf of young migrants seeking safety in our country - how to educate community members and how to persuade policymakers to ensure access to much-needed legal representation, education, healthcare, and other social services.
