DT 1483 Psychological factors in credibility assessments of asylum seekers

"We will show you how to use your knowledge and understanding of the processes, together with appropriate research materials to challenge negative credibility findings for your clients."

This course will present and discuss various psychological reasons why some asylum seekers have particular difficulties in presenting their case.  We will present the latest research findings that help elucidate some of the psychological processes at work.  We will encourage discussion of the ways in which these findings can help legal representatives to better inform and support clients going through the asylum system.  Finally we will consider some of the effects that working with traumatised clients can have on us, both professionally and personally.
