Upcoming Webinars

July 29th, 2021

Joshua Bardavid, Esq. and Jelisaveta Sanja Rolovic, Ph.D. continue our exciting webinar series with a presentation titled, "Immigration Basics: A Roadmap to a Collaboration Between Lawyers and Family Therapists".

Undocumented immigrants, unaccompanied minors, refugees and asylum seekers and their families are among the most vulnerable populations in our legal system.

Often, asylum seekers, other immigrants and their families require a psychological evaluation in support of their immigration applications in the United States. The report, which can take virtually any form, is usually requested by a lawyer or accredited immigrant support organization. It most likely will be used in court or presented to the Department of Homeland Security.

Our hope is that this webinar will encourage AFTA members to devote their time and expertise in taking on this worthy task of helping families and advancing the cause of social justice.
