This webinar will help attorneys develop strategies for identifying capacity and mental competency issues when working with children, in addition to, raising these challenges in immigration court and during asylum interviews. It will also provide guiding principles and best practices for working with traumatized children and mental health experts as attorneys develop and prepare a child’s immigration case.
