Subject: [AAPA Members] Recruitment of Mental Health Service Providers who
work with LGBTQ+ Asylum Seekers and webinar this Thursday
To: members@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx <members@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Dear colleagues,

I am conducting a qualitative study with mental health service providers
who work with LGBTQ+ Asylum Seekers. Please share the attached flyer with
anyone who might be interested in participating.

I will also be moderating a related webinar on Thursday, April 30 at 9am
PT/12pm ET which is being hosted by APA's Division 44.

*A Framework for Clinical Practice with Sexual and Gender Minority Asylum
Seekers  *

Taking into account the recent Covid-19 pandemic, this webinar also
addresses the particular vulnerabilities of sexual and gender minority
(SGM) asylum seekers during the crisis and how mental health practitioners
can intervene to support them. Already struggling to meet basic needs
(housing, food, financial), it may be especially difficult for SGM asylum
seekers to meet their needs during extended periods of sheltering-in-place.
Many SGM asylum seekers are also undocumented, which means that they cannot
receive social assistance from the government. All of this may be
compounded by the need to deal with medical problems, such as HIV, and
psychological concerns, such as depression and traumatic stress, while
attempting to manage the social and economic impacts of Covid-19.

Register here:

Thank you!
