Immigration Evaluations: Making a Powerful Impact While Creating a Thriving Practice 10.8.21
Time & Location
About the Event
Description of the presentation: Few therapists realize that by providing assessments for immigration legal cases, we can help families stay together and help refugees get asylum. Plus, with reliable referral streams from immigration lawyers, therapists can also create sustainable practices. There’s a huge need for these mental health assessments, and it’s surprisingly easy to get started. There’s no need to have a doctorate, be bilingual, or have any specialized experience. With the right training, therapists can learn how to apply their skills to the unique needs of immigration cases. This webinar outlines the steps a therapist can take to make a powerful difference in the lives of immigrants, while creating a thriving and meaningful private practice.
Presenter Bio: Georgia King, LCSW is one of the leading therapists providing evaluations for immigration cases
in the United States. Over the past decade, she has provided assessments for hundreds of
immigrants from around the world with an exceptionally high success rate. She regularly
appears in court as an expert witness and has been a guest speaker at Georgetown Law School,
the Smith College School for Social Work, and the American Association of Marriage and Family
Therapists, as well as numerous chapters of NASW. In 2017, Ms. King founded The Immigration
Evaluation Training Center, the first training center of its kind, and she has had the opportunity
to teach hundreds of therapists how to provide highly effective evaluations for immigration
cases. A graduate of the Smith College School for Social Work, Ms. King worked for years as a
therapist in community mental health and then at Walter Reed military base with active-duty
soldiers. After a lawyer asked her to conduct an assessment for an immigration case, she
discovered her passion for advocating for immigrants. She brings a strong commitment to
working towards social and racial justice and supporting other therapists in doing the same. She
