This text prepares mental health professionals to conduct a thorough psychological assessment of individuals involved in immigration proceedings, present the results in a professional report, and develop a basic legal understanding of immigration cases. Written by a licensed clinical psychologist with the input of an attorney certified in Immigration and Nationality Law, the book is practical and uses clear language, making it accessible to different groups of readers.

Chapters focus on specific problems and questions such as: what makes immigration evaluations unique, the mental health provider’s role in asylum cases, how to provide testimony in immigration court, and more. Vignettes and sample reports link theory to real-world situations, making use of the authors’ multiple years of combined experience.

This book is an essential guide for clinicians who want to assist this diverse and often disempowered population.
