    Assessing Psychological Impact of Trauma in Victims of Domestic Violence, Violent Crimes, or Human Trafficking - 4 CEs 

    Presented by Dr. Mariela Shibley

    Friday, October 23, 2020
    9:00 am - 1:00 pm

    Under the federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), victims of battery or extreme cruelty committed by a spouse or certain family members may be eligible to become a lawful permanent resident (get a Green Card).

    Victims of certain crimes or human trafficking who have suffered psychological or physical harm and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity may qualify for a U or T nonimmigrant status (U visa or T visa).

    A psychological evaluation can be extremely helpful for the adjudicator to understand the psychological impact of abuse and trauma and the short-and long-term effects it can cause. The opinion of a mental health expert is often a determining factor for whether a petition will be approved or denied.

    Learn how you can contribute to helping some of the most vulnerable undocumented immigrants rebuild their lives in the aftermath of trauma.

      LECTURE #2

      Reconnection: The Sexual Health Needs of Pre-Menopausal Breast Cancer Survivors

      Presenters:  Cheryl Fisher, PhD, NCC, LCMHC, LCPC, ACS and Heather Lamb, RN, MSN, FNP-C

      OCT 23

      According to the American Cancer Society (2020), 26,393 women under the age of 45 are impacted by breast cancer annually. Treatments include mastectomies and oophorectomies resulting in infertility, and the administration of medications that catapult young women into early menopause. Even with reconstructive surgery, patients are left with decreased neurological sensation. Struggling with body image, decreased libido and little follow up around sexual health, young women and their partners experience isolation from, and collapse of their relationships. Dr. Cheryl Fisher, Director of the Online MA in Clinical Counseling Program, and Oncology Nurse Practitioner, Heather Lamb will examine the physical, psychological and social implications of breast cancer treatment on sexual health. As sensual and sexual beings, sexual health is an integral part of the human experience and overall life satisfaction. Based on their research and case studies, presenters will provide practical ways that clinicians can identify, validate, and advocate for the sexual health of breast cancer survivors.

      Immigration Evaluations Training: Evaluating Hardship for Waivers of Inadmissibility - 4 CEs 

      Presented by Dr. Mariela Shibley

      Friday, November 6, 2020
      9:00 am - 1:00 pm

      Immigration waivers allow a non-citizen or foreign national to seek to have a ground of inadmissibility waived in order to be lawfully admitted to the United States. In order to do this, the applicant must file a waiver of inadmissibility. There are different types of waivers: some can be filed while the applicant is in the United States, while some others are filed as part of a consular process for filers abroad.

      Psychological evaluations may play a crucial role in determining eligibility and favorable discretion, ultimately keeping families together. Learn how to conduct thorough psychological evaluations and detailed reports while expanding the scope of your practice to include this valuable and lucrative service!
