Migration and Mental Health

Section: A

CRN: 7449

Credits: 3

With the recent and expected demographic and cultural shifts, there is a call for researchers and clinicians to culturally tailor assessment methodologies and evidence-based practices in order to understand the etiology of various mental health disorders and treat various symptom presentations in migrant populations. Within clinical settings in the United States, limited training is offered in culturally tailoring and delivering clinical interventions for migrants who present with a distinct set of symptoms and conceptualization of distress. In addition, within the past forty years of research on stress and trauma related reactions of refugees and migrants, few researchers utilized culturally adapted measures to aptly capture such phenomena. This course will provide an overview of various techniques in culturally adapting measures and clinical interventions for migrants. The course will prepare students to conduct cognitive interviews,adapt measures cross-culturally and linguistically, and deliver evidence-based treatments to mental health seeking migrants.
