When people around the world seek asylum from terrible conditions, how do social workers respond to their trauma? When families are forced to leave their homes with no money or resources, how do aid organizations guide them to safe, new communities?
A two-day conference at The College of Saint Rose will address these and other serious questions that social workers, mental health counselors, doctors, community organizers and policy makers around the world face as the global refugee crisis unfolds.
The EVER Changing World: 4th International Conference will be held Wednesday, June 8, and Thursday, June 9, in Saint Joseph Hall, 985 Madison Ave., Albany, New York. The conference is sponsored by the Institute of Community Research and Training (ICRT), a program at Saint Rose that engages faculty across the disciplines in projects that address homelessness, mental illness and other economic and social issues, both locally and overseas.
Pre-registration for EVER Changing World is required. Cost is $175 for both days, $75 for students, and financial aid is available.
