      This webinar is the 2nd in a series, and focuses on the second and third phases of the Undocumented Stress Cycle: moments of acute deportability and hustling. Moments of acute deportability are important because they comprise highly stressful and vulnerable experiences during which young people require immediate psychological and practical (hustling) support. The aims of this webinar are to (a) propose Psychological First Aid as a set of strategies helpful for addressing young peoples’ high levels of stress; and (b) introduce “co-hustling” as a necessary, creative practice for professionals seeking to help young people who lack access to formal institutional resources and supports. Sponsored by the Sacramento State, Dreamer Resource Center.

        The 3rd webinar in a series focuses on the fourth and fifth phases of the Undocumented Stress Cycle, which involve experiences of chronic fears and concerns as well as the various ways young people learn to cope with them. Social contexts play a crucial role in shaping how young people learn to make sense of their status and their possibilities for living fulfilling lives. Accordingly, the goals of this webinar are to (a) discuss prominent concerns and struggles experienced by young persons impacted by undocumented status and (b) identify useful practices for helping young persons develop self-compassion and affirmative identities that can lead to more self-determined ways of living.    RSVP

        The 4th in a series of webinars, takes a long-term look at the Undocumented Stress Cycle and what long-term well-being might mean for young people impacted by undocumented status. Dr. Ellis considers the role of activism in the lives of undocumented young persons, as undocumented activists are often treated as models of youth empowerment and resilience. Yet, while activism serves as a valuable means for helping young people develop positive identities, it also poses social risks and personal challenges that frequently go unacknowledged both by professionals and activists themselves.    RSVP
