Sites for Student Field Experiences in Refugee Mental Health. Task VI--Training.
Hoshino, George; And Others
This report on sites for student field experiences in refugee mental health has been prepared by the University of Minnesota's Mental Health Technical Assistance Center for the state refugee assistance programs. After a brief introduction describing the mission of the Technical Assistance Center, the characteristics of field experience in mental health training are reviewed, along with the purpose and procedures of the ensuing survey of student field experience sites. A total of 323 agencies in 40 states, plus Guam and the Philippines, indicated a willingness to accept students for field experiences. The number and location of these agencies are listed, along with the kinds of students, by profession or discipline, for whom these agencies were willing to provide field experiences and reasons given for not being able or willing to take students. Results of the survey are then summarized. The rest of the report comprises an alphabetical directory, listed by state, of these 323 agencies willing to provide field experiences. Each entry in the directory lists mental health and related services of the agency, population served, language capabilities of this population, staff, and opportunities, by profession, for field placement. Addresses of federal agencies for current information related to state mental health departments and state offices for refugee resettlement are appended. (TE)
