Dreamers Advocacy Special Topics Workshop: Supporting the Mental Health and Wellbeing of Dreamers
9 am-11 am
In this interactive workshop, participants will learn about the mental health challenges associated with being an undocumented or DACA individual. Joining us virtually is Dr. Dana Rusch, Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at University of Illinois at Chicago and Director of the Immigrant Family Mental Health Advocacy Program at the Institute for Juvenile Research. Using her experience as a mental health provider and policy advocate, Dr. Rusch will share how we can support students and families currently experiencing psychological distress and/or trauma due to their citizenship status. Through exploration and discussion of realistic scenarios, participants will unlock key strategies for nurturing mental health and wellbeing for individuals impacted by immigration stressors. Participants will also hear from the Undocumented Student Resources Committee who will share a new framework for approaching this work at UW-Parkside, as well as the most recent data and legislation that directly affects members of our community.
This is an in-person workshop with no option to attend virtually. We believe that when engaging in dialogue on sensitive topics such as citizenship status and mental health, it is best to facilitate these interactions face-to-face. Pre-registration is required. All individuals who attend the entire workshop will receive a certificate and a DREAMers Welcome poster.
This event has been organized by the Undocumented Student Resources Committee and is sponsored by the Office of Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion.
