COUNSELING

ShifaME counseling is a service for children and families who have experienced trauma or severe stress associated with being a refugee, asylee, or immigrant. This includes stress related to trauma, acculturation, resettlement, or isolation. The model for treatment is Trauma Systems Therapy adapted for Refugees (TST-R).
