This webinar, from June 11, 2008, features Husam Abdulkhaleq and Abdallah Boumediene of ACCESS.
This webinar is part of the National Capacity Building (NCB) webinar series. NCB is a project of the Center for Victims of Torture.
This webinar is designed to aid health care workers and providers with usefull information on Iraqi immigrants who have survived torture and/or trauma. Understanding where the client fall on a cultural continuum is critical for the provider as it can ease the transition to western medicine and traditions. In the first dimension, clients are evaluated as Un-acculturated, Bi-cultural, and Westernized. In the second dimension, the provider must identify the ego strength, cultural identity, and family strictness in the clients they wish to assist.
