Trauma-Informed Approaches to Support Latin@ Immigrant Survivors Through Their Immigration Process

Event Date

A survivor's story is one of the most important pieces of evidence for getting a VAWA self-petition or a U Visa. But having to share experiences of abuse can be retraumatizing, so creating a safe and comfortable environment for survivors is crucial.

To prioritize survivors' psychological well-being, consider helping them develop an emotional safety plan. Doing so can help survivors feel more comfortable and in control. The plan should be tailored to the individual and may include: 

  • Recognizing triggers 
  • Identifying trusted friends or family members who can provide emotional support 
  • Practicing self-care techniques such as meditation or breathing exercises 
  • Seeking professional help if necessary 

Learn more about emotional safety planning, VAWA and U Visas, and how to provide support in this upcoming webinar from Esperanza United, ASISTA, and
