PHR’s Asylum Program offers basic and advanced trainings for health professionals to learn how to apply their clinical skills to support asylum applications. These all-day trainings are held a minimum of two times each year and often offer continuing education credits for physicians, psychologists, and licensed clinical social workers. We require all new network members to attend a training prior to taking on their first case, unless they have relevant forensic experience.
