Event description

Description

Refugees come to the United States fleeing persecution and in many cases, bring with them a history of trauma. If you work/volunteer with a refugee in any capacity, this training is for you. We hope that attendees will gain a better understanding of the importance of being sensitive to a person's trauma background by learning more about PTSD, how trauma affects a person's mental health and behavior, how culture affects how a person responds to trauma, and even how another person's trauma can affect other people around them.

Kate Harline (Har-LEEN), who is leading this training, is a certified social worker and therapist at Utah Health and Human Rights (UHHR). UHHR is a non-profit in Salt Lake City that provides mental health services for refugees who are survivors of torture. Kate completed her bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies at Seattle Pacific University and her master’s degree in Social Work at the University of Utah.
