In this second session of this two-part series, Richard Mollica will facilitate a conversation with Dr. Sebastian Ssempijja, Ph.D. CEO/Clinic Director, Sebastian Family Psychology Practice, LLC, and Laura Morrissette MA, LMHC, a therapist with the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma (HPRT) who will use case studies to share their insights on using the H.E.A.R.T. model in a clinical setting and how it might compare with using a trauma sensitive meditation instruction approach.
Staff of all disciplines are encouraged to attend. After the MIW, participants will be equipped to:
- Understand the magnitude of mental health problems for refugees
- Describe Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and how it relates to working with survivors of torture
- Articulate the basic principles of hearing the trauma story
- Identify the key components of the H.E.A.R.T. model for therapy
