Migration, detention, and seperation: traumas of Central American children and families
This webinar focuses on the plight of children and parents from Central America who have sought asylum in the U.S. Drawing on his research, clinical work, and the available literature, Zayas identifies the forces that drive families to make precarious journeys to safety and the effects of immigration detention. He then points to the numerous stressors and traumas suffered by children, operating from the perspectives of human attachment and mental health. Zayas poses critical questions for providers of all types who assess, treat, and organize services for these families.
