Psychological Evaluation Training

In September 2016, the Libertas LCSW Therapist facilitated a training on forensic psychological evaluations with seven mental health providers in order to help expand the Libertas Center’s capacity to meet the multiple client requests for psychological evaluations to support their asylum cases. The training included fundamentals about preparing for and conducting a psychological evaluation, as well guidance on how to draft a well-supported affidavit. In addition, the training provided a practical overview of how evaluators would work with the Libertas Center and manage communication from lawyers.
