New Resource: How Social Workers Can Help Children at U.S. Border

The National Association of Social Workers North Carolina Chapter (NASW-NC) has created a new resource for members titled How Social Workers Can Help Children Being Separated From Parents at the U.S. Border.

 

Social workers are increasingly concerned about what is happening at the U.S. southern border. The Trump Administration "zero tolerance" immigration policy that is prosecuting families who attempt to cross the border and forcibly separate children from parents is malicious and unconscionable and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) are pressing lawmakers to rescind this egregious action.

 

Many NASW-NC members have reached out to the Chapter office about how to help. We hope this resource guide will inspire you to take action. We will update this document as more information becomes available.

In addition to our resource, the National Association of Social Workers has developed a resource guide that includes information on how to serve as translators and conduct health assessments. Click here to view this resource!

Thank you for making this information available! I am devastated thinking thinking about the children as well as the parents!!! The media keeps talking about the mental health of the children, but I also think about the mental health of the parents. I can not imagine the pain of thinking that you are bringing your children to "safety" only to have them " stolen" from you!! The media needs to focus on both the mental health of the parents and the children!! There have already been suicides of parents and attempts by children. This is beyond awful!!
