Webinar - Psychological First Aid and Immediate Support for Young People Impacted by Undocumented Status
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.
