The NASW NH Diversity Awareness Committee is pleased to bring you this free seminar:
Wednesday, April 18th
9:00 - 10:30 AM at the NASW NH office or virtually via Zoom
Immigrants, both documented and undocumented, have unique needs and challenges in our society. As social workers and allied professionals, it is necessary for us to know about the issues and barriers faced by this population to best address the clinical and societal implications. This seminar will cover the historical and current policies of immigration, the effect of these policies on immigrant populations, and the ethical responsibilities of clinical and community based practitioners.
