Research from Healing in Partnership

CVT Research Associate Patricia Shannon, PhD, LP, recently co-authored a study, Evaluating the Mental Health Training Needs of Community-based Organizations Serving Refugees. The study looked at the mental health knowledge and training needs of community-based organizations serving refugees, and makes policy recommendations to improve those services. The study was published in Advances in Social Work (Vol. 13 No. 2 2012). CVT is grateful to the St. Paul Foundation whose financial support made this work possible.
