Not many therapists know about the amazing opportunities available in the field of immigration law. By providing evaluations for immigration legal cases, therapists can help immigrant families stay together and help refugees get asylum. Lawyers have a huge need for expert clinical assessments, and the field is wide open for therapists to get started. There's no need to be bilingual, have a doctorate or have specialized experience. It's easy for therapists to get the training and knowledge necessary to adapt their existing skills to the detailed structure of immigration cases.

In addition to being on the front lines of advocacy, this work allows therapist to develop reliable referral sources from immigration lawyers. By balancing pro bono work with clients in need, and full-fee work with wealthier immigrants, therapists can create reliable new streams of income.

Join the webinar to find out how clinical assessments can provide evidence for different types of immigration cases. And you'll see how assessments are often the deciding factor in whether families stay together or refugees get asylum. Plus you'll get an overview of how to create a sustainable practice by adding immigration evaluations, and how to get started if you'd like to move forward.
