Immigrants experience a wide range of systemic stressors pre- mid- and post-migration that can impact their mental health. In order to effectively and ethically treat immigrant communities, clinicians and researchers alike must understand the impact of external experiences and internal identities. This workshop will provide an overview of psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and systemic approaches to conceptualizing immigrant clients. Presenters will discuss specific strategies for attending to diverse identities, fostering cultural humility, and building on clients’ strengths. Participants will interact via live chat and a case-based discussion.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify potential stressors related to pre-, mid-, and post-migration
  2. Conceptualize patients using an integrative framework
  3. Apply theoretical orientations to case conceptualizations
