EVENT: Asylum Evaluation Training with the Weill Cornell Center for Human Rights

What: Asylum Evaluation Training with the Weill Cornell Center for Human Rights
When: Saturday February 4, 2017. Check-in/breakfast beginning at 7:30 am. The event will run from 8:00 am until 1:30 pm and includes lunch
Where: Weill Auditorium, 1300 York Ave.

On February 4, 2017 from 8:00 am – 1:30 pm we will hold a training session, led by our volunteer evaluators, where you can learn more about the role of clinicians and students in the asylum evaluation process. The training will comprise lectures that provide an introduction to asylum law and affidavit writing and cover the three types of evaluations: gynecological, physical, and psychological. Additionally, during the last part of the training, attendees will break out into small groups led by experienced evaluators to discuss redacted, example affidavits drawn from the leaders' work. This training is open to any clinician (MD, PsyD, PA, LCSW, NP) or student interested in performing forensic evaluations of asylum seekers.

The training is REQUIRED for any student or clinician who wishes to volunteer with the WCCHR and has yet to attend a previous training. No prior experience is necessary. To learn more about forensic evaluations, please visit our website at http://wcchr.com or contact us at wcchr@med.cornell.edu.

Lunch and a light breakfast will be served. Kindly RSVP at the following link if you plan to attend:
