Thanks to everyone who attended our June 20 training, Strengths Based Interventions with Immigrant and Refugee Populations. What an awesome presentation by Dr. Bob Bertolino! I hope you left with ideas to immediately improve your practice. Thanks to Dr. Bertolino for reminding us all: the strongest evidence based practice, offered by the most skilled clinician, will yield little if it is not a good fit for the recipient and does not take into account their unique world view.
