Association for Refugee Service Professionals

Join the Conversation

Tuesday, July 7th to Wednesday, September 30th

Please join us in an online, open forum on telehealth. NCB is providing an opportunity for clinicians to ask each other questions, share observations and adapted telehealth protocols for the SoT population via an online forum and technical exchange. This conversation will be a forum for peer-led informational exchange. NCB staff will assist in facilitating and monitoring the conversation.

Directions: Please watch Eugene Augusterfer’s presentation and interview Telemedicine in Mental Health first. Then feel free to join us in this open forum. All are welcome to join this forum, whether you have an account on or not. For more information on using the forum, please read the directions on the first post. Please keep your comments respectful, relevant, factual, and do not share identifying information about clients per client privacy and HIPAA regulations. This forum will be open from July 6, 2020 through September 30, 2020.

The Association for Refugee Service Professionals came out of the vision of Carol Roxburgh, Executive Director of Refugee Services of Texas Inc. Professionals who have worked in this field for a number of years have noticed increased stress among colleagues and burnout of key people with years of experience, resulting in turnover and loss. This affects the overall effectiveness of agencies, as well as the clients we serve. After further discussion with many peers and receiving positive feedback, a group was formed to start the process to have a professional association open to all who work in immigration and refugee related fields. This association will provide professional growth, and emotional support for the well being of its members.
