Join HIAS and our partner, VECINA, in Part II of our discussion on trauma-informed lawyering and best practices in competently and compassionately representing asylum seekers and other survivors. This session will focus specifically on how to work with traumatized clients to develop their case, including working with healthcare experts in psychological/medical evaluations, and considerations in working with traumatized families/kids.

The Biden administration has promised to be friendlier and fairer to asylum seekers and other immigrants, which we anticipate will include expanding programs such as Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED). HIAS is offering a training on the basics of pursuing TPS and DED as part of our webinar training series for attorneys.
