This webinar is intended for practitioners in their own clinical spaces when assessing trauma and associated symptoms in refugees and torture survivors. This webinar’s goals are to delve into the available assessment for trauma and associated symptoms in refugees and torture survivors, describe the basic qualitative and quantitative methods for developing assessments about trauma and symptoms, and identify current instruments available for use and potentially discuss needs for new instruments. Dr. Hollifield describes many of these assessments and instruments that are available for use in a caregiver’s program. He emphasizes their comprehensive view of the traumatic experiences the refugees have, and explains how the assessments and instruments effectively apply to a wide variety of patient experiences and events. With the use of many thorough analytical tools, Dr. Hollifield reveals how instruments are developed, what the important concepts are in instrument development, and what you should look at when deciding to use an instrument in your own practice.
