Changing immigration policies have disrupted the lives of millions of immigrants, refugees and their families. Drastic refugee cutbacks, family separations and escalating deportations are upending immigrants' futures. Not making the headlines, however, are the hidden daily stresses, fears and traumas that have intensified among the foreign-born in our communities, classes and workplaces and are inhibiting their contributions to our society.

Join experts in social work, psychology, advocacy and education for the free, interactive webinar Tackling the Hidden Crisis: Immigrant Anxiety and Trauma on Tuesday, September 18, from 1-2 p.m. This free webinar will uncover the hidden public health crisis facing immigrants of all kinds and dive deeply into ways that can improve immigrants' lives and allow them to achieve their full potential in uncertain, perilous times. Register for free here.

Topics to be explored:

  • Trauma and anxiety as a silent public health crisis facing immigrants across the nation
  • How rhetoric, discrimination and policies, including the imminent "public charge" changes, are impacting new Americans
  • Strategies to manage these stresses, fears and traumas at interpersonal, institutional and community levels
