The purpose of this project was to create a curriculum that increases the knowledge and skills of social workers and other mental health practitioners to work effectively with refugee and immigrant survivors of trauma in the United States. To accomplish this goal, the training modules of the curriculum address the following topics: background on refugees and immigrants, trauma and its effects, therapeutic considerations in treatment, assessment and treatment, and vicarious traumatization and self-care. The literature reviewed for this project suggests that refugees and immigrants encounter various traumatic events during the stages of migration that puts them at risk for mental health issues such as depression, PTSD, and anxiety. This curriculum helps the practitioner gain awareness on the complex issues of refugees and immigrants, develop cultural competency, and acquire skills in the assessment and interventions used to help promote refugee and immigrant mental health.
