Abstract:

Poster presented on: Wednesday, July 24, 2013, Thursday, July 25, 2013

Demoralization is a real threat to patients when advance practice nurses apply trauma informed care principles to the unique needs of refugees, immigrants and asylees. Indeed, the backbone of assertive community treatment has grown in anticipation of using patient strengths to support functioning. In this case study, the author uses the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma to illustrate the real work that is occurring with refugees, immigrants, and asylees in a large metropolitan community setting. Mental Health care provided to emerging groups in community settings extends beyond place-bound services. This case study highlights the myriad of needs, and unique skills of the provider in a race to overcome the added complication of demoralization in providing competent treatment. Lessons learned are valuable to all mental health providers.
