Presenter(s): 

This webinar is a panel discussion that attempts to answer questions that health care providers face when working with Iraqi torture survivors. Topics include suggestions to work with clients that have deep distrust of officials, fall into social isolation, and have struggles resettling in the United States. The presenters also answer questions from the panel in regards to the emotion of Iraqis in seeking treatment from American health care providers as a result of the on-going conflict in Iraq. Also, ways to work with intra-faith (Sunni/Shia) issues in Iraqi patients.
