Trauma in Context Fellowship
The Trauma in Context Fellowship is embedded within the Immigrant and Refugee Health Center (IRHC) and the REcovery from Stress and Trauma through Outpatient care, Research, and Education (RESTORE) Center at Boston Medical Center. Fellows will receive specialized training in culturally responsive, trauma-focused assessments, treatments, and research. The IRHC connects all of Boston Medical Center’s existing programs and expertise in immigrant and refugee health care into one central point of entry where any immigrant patient can be connected with all of BMC’s medical, mental health and social services that they need in order to heal, rebuild and thrive. The RESTORE Center provides a hub for comprehensive clinical services, research, and clinical training for trauma and related disorders. Evidence-based clinical services include cognitive processing therapy, written exposure therapy, and an abbreviated version of skills training in affective and interpersonal regulation for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This fellowship is 70% clinical and 30% research/scholarly activity.
Clinical Supervisors: Sandra Mattar, PsyD and Sarah Valentine, PhD
