Are you interested in learning how to complete Hardship evaluations? 

You are in the right place so welcome! 

I'm going to take a guess and say that you are probably a bilingual therapist that has been approached about whether you provide hardship evaluations for immigration purposes...

Furthermore, I'm going to take another guess and say that, once you were approached, the first thing you did was to begin to search the internet for answers:

     What is included in these evaluations?

     Where can I find examples?

    How do I lay out such an evaluation?

    How many times do I need to see these clients?

     Is this real therapy or something different?

     What questions do I ask?

     How do I address my concerns?

     What recommendations do I make?

     Will I be subpoenaed to court?

     Am I even qualified to complete these evaluations?!?

I could be wrong about all of the above but my guess is that I'm pretty dead on. And my reason for telling you this is because that was me! Back in 2009, I received a call from a potential client asking me to write a hardship evaluation. I asked the most basic questions to find out what in the world I was being asked to do and then told this person I would call them back. After doing some research, I decided to try it out. I was petrified at what I might be getting myself into but fast forward eight years, these evaluations now make up approximately 50% of my private practice!

Very few therapists want to help other clinicians get into this field. So, the therapists who have come to me are desperate for answers. They just want to find out how to complete the evaluations, so that they can help those who have a family member facing deportation!

I have developed a step-by-step training to answer all of these questions and more, that you may not have even considered yet. This training will prepare you to:

          a. decide whether you can/should work with a potential client needing these services

          b. figure out what information you need to gather even before you meet

          c. create paperwork that will help you gather all of the information needed to complete a thorough evaluation

          d. decide on the structure of your sessions and create a package deal if this fits well within your practice

          e. maintain focus on your client (the US resident or citizen) while also taking into account the other members of the family

          f. structure your evaluation including a format that attorneys approve of

           g. create strong and lasting relationships with immigration attorneys which will lead to a steady stream of new clients

           h. create strong and lasting relationships with your clients

If this sounds like something that you would find helpful, keep reading to find out more about my new training group!

Now is the perfect time to start a new venture! This training will involve two 2 hour webinars (using the Zoom platform) which will be one-on-one or with a small group depending on when you join. These meetings will cover various topics to prepare you for this work, such as the following (and much more):

          1. Understanding Different Types of Immigration Cases (I-601, U-Visa, T-Visa, VAWA, DACA)

          2. How to Prepare Prior to Accepting Immigration Clients

            3. How to Prepare for Intake Calls

            4. How to Prepare Your Paperwork and Documents

          5. First Session

          6. Topics to Include in the Interview

          7. The Evaluation

          8. Follow-up and Attorney Communication

If needed, we will meet for a follow-up to see what questions you have after implementing the material provided in the training.
