Presenter(s): 

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.


Objectives:

  1. Understand the magnitude of mental health problems for refugees
  2. Describe Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and how it relates to working with survivors of torture
  3. Articulate the basic principles of hearing the trauma story
  4. Identify the key components of the H.E.A.R.T. model for therapy
