In collaboration with the Postgraduate Programs at Adelphi University’s Derner School of Psychology, HealthRight International’s Human Rights Clinic (HRC) will be holding a training this fall for new volunteer clinicians in New York City.
The Human Rights Clinic trains and deploys volunteer physicians and mental health professionals to provide clinical evaluations for survivors of torture, abuse, and neglect seeking immigration relief in the United States. We serve immigrant children, adolescents, and adults seeking protection in the NY metro area.
This training is open to licensed physicians and mental health professionals holding clinical licenses.
We welcome applicants with diverse backgrounds and skillsets. Clinicians possessing any of the following qualities are strongly encouraged to apply:
– Professional or native fluency in Spanish, French, Russian, or Bengali
– Child welfare experience
– Expertise in intimate partner violence
– Expertise in LGBTQI populations
– Neuropsychology specialty
– Ability to travel to NJ to evaluate clients in detention
Given limited space, we ask that applicants have a sincere interest in joining our network of volunteer clinicians following the training.
