English Courses

What are the benefits of immigrants learning English? The United States is the perfect example to answer this question, given the large number of people from Central and South America who arrive each year with the intention of staying and trying to fulfill the dream of economic growth. A study on Migration Trends finds there is a tremendous growth in people from Central and South America migrating to the United States. There are many benefits of learning to speak English. Inclusion can increase economic opportunities and social interactions.

Cultural confinement can lead people to believe that they do not need to expand or leave their comfort zone. But there are so many opportunities that an immigrant acquires when he or she speaks English, that step will always be worth it. Some more benefits of learning English include,

Better Communication
More Work Opportunities
Increased Chance of Legalization
More Confidence
Mental Health Improvements

Clinical Supervision

Clinical Supervision
Supervision is used in counselling, psychotherapy, and other mental health disciplines as well as many other professions engaged in working with people. Supervision may be applied as well to practitioners in somatic disciplines for their preparatory work for patients as well as collateral with patients. Supervision is a replacement instead of formal retrospective inspection, delivering evidence about the skills of the supervised practitioners.

It consists of the practitioner meeting regularly with another professional, not necessarily more senior, but normally with training in the skills of supervision, to discuss casework and other professional issues in a structured way. This is often known as clinical or counselling supervision (consultation differs in being optional advice from someone without a supervisor’s formal authority). The purpose is to assist the practitioner to learn from his or her experience and progress in expertise, as well as to ensure good service to the client or patient. Learning shall be applied to planning work as well as to diagnostic work and therapeutic work.

REB Human Services offers and provides high quality and informative supervision to practitioners and students.

Internship Opportunities

REB Human Services partners with academic institutions across Massachusetts in providing clinical internships. This is an opportunity for students to learn and get field experience.

Telehealth

The use of electronic information and communication technology to allow remote access to medical care as well as the management of one’s own medical requirements is referred to as “telehealth.” Technologies include not just personal computers like desktops and laptops but also other electronic gadgets like tablets and mobile phones. There is a good chance that you have something very much like this in your very own house. A nurse or other kind of medical practitioner working out of a clinic or mobile unit might provide telehealth services to patients located in more remote regions. When searching for ways to enhance or supplement the treatment they offer their patients, healthcare practitioners may want to take into consideration the use of telehealth technology.

The usage of telehealth, also known as electronic health or mobile health, may help achieve the objectives listed below, which are presented in a list format for your convenience.

  • Access to medical care needs to be made more convenient for those who reside in more remote areas, such as rural areas and other locations.
  • If you know for sure or have reason to think that you have an illness that is infectious, such as COVID-19, you should take care to protect not just yourself but also the people around you.
  • As the first point of contact for patients with various medical issues, you will be responsible for providing assistance to patients.
  • Make it simpler for those who have trouble moving about, are pressed for time, or are restricted in their transit options to access services.
  • Facilitate getting in contact with medical professionals in an easy manner.
  • Increase the amount of communication that goes in both directions between the patient and the members of their medical team.
  • Give them some pointers on how they may take responsibility for their own health care decisions and follow through with them.

A sizable number of persons benefited from the use of telemedicine during the COVID-19 epidemic, and this trend continues to this day. Patients all across the globe are showing an increased interest in using telehealth services. With the use of telehealth, the REB Human Services helps bridge the gap between patients and their physicians for patients who are unable to see their doctors on a regular basis or who are located in a different state. Visits via telemedicine have the potential to be beneficial in the treatment of a broad range of medical conditions, such as COVID-19, the common cold, the flu, migraines, skin disorders, diabetes, depression, and anxiety. When a face-to-face meeting isn’t essential or practical, these consultations give the next best thing to having one. They are an excellent alternative. It is possible that the medical professionals at REB Human Services may provide you online forms and material to fill out before your planned session. They could even provide you the tools you need to get the job done. In the event that you are missing any applications or software, they will check for this and provide links to download it if necessary. They will also be able to instruct you on how to access the video chat and how to begin the session. Instructions on how to use the voice and text chat aspects of the video call may also be offered by the medical staff at some point during the conversation. If you find yourself in need of assistance, you should approach a close friend or member of your family for it.

Family & Couples Therapy

Family and couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on the underlying problems in a family in order to improve both the emotional health of the family members and the quality of the communication that occurs within the family. The goal of family therapy is to improve both the emotional health of the family members and the quality of the communication that occurs within the family. There is a good chance that it will assist in the resolution of family difficulties and also in the establishment of healthy relationships between members of the family. These are two scenarios that would be to everyone’s advantage. It is possible that family therapy might have a role in the process of bringing about change in close personal connections by improving the ways in which members of the family interact with one another and respond to one another. The goals of family and couples therapy are to promote communication and understanding within a household, to suggest viable solutions to difficulties, and to shine light on the obstacles that every family must confront at some time or another in their lives. The REB Human Services provides counseling for individuals, as well as for families and couples. This kind of therapy supports married couples in maintaining a happy and successful relationship and assists people within a family in getting a better knowledge of one another. You will most likely start the procedure that you go through with the REB Human Services with an assessment. This is likely to be the first step. This is also the case with a wide range of different forms of therapy. During this session, you and your therapist are going to discuss the difficulties that you are currently facing as well as the aspects of your life in which you might benefit from receiving assistance. At this point in the process, your therapist may discuss the strategy that they will use to assist you as well as the goals that they have devised for the subsequent sessions that you will be attending. It is quite possible that the actual treatment session will include the participation of the whole family. As a result, it is extremely likely that the entire family will be present in the same room together and will have the chance to freely speak with one another. Despite this, therapists may decide to work with particular individuals, couples, or family groupings as clients within the context of their professions. The particulars of the problem that you are attempting to resolve are the components that will decide everything.

You will have the opportunity to get multiple sessions throughout the course , however, you are not required to limit your interactions to a single therapist. Listening in while the group discusses the issue and offers potential solutions to each other in front of the family is something that a lot of families find to be tremendously helpful.

No matter what the circumstances may be, the counselors are not going to “take sides” or point the finger of blame at any one client in the group. They have instead come to the conclusion that it is more important to make it a point to consult each and every member of the family in order to arrive at answers to the issues that are collectively agreed upon. At a typical meeting, the amount of time that should be set up for people to speak should be anywhere from fifty to ninety minutes. Because of this possibility, there will be a chance for everyone to make a contribution. Sessions of therapy are typically scheduled once per week on average; however, during the first evaluation, your therapist will discuss the ideal frequency of sessions with you and work with you to schedule those sessions.

The REB Human Services will consider factors such as your age, condition, and personal preferences while formulating a treatment plan that is specifically designed to address your particular needs in the most effective manner. You are going to be treated using this methodology. Sessions designed to interest children may involve a number of activities for the participants, such as painting and playing.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a subset of psychotherapy in which a therapist works one-on-one with a single patient to help them go through the process of addressing their own distinct collection of issues. It is an effective method for dealing with a broad variety of psychological problems. Talk therapy, often known as psychotherapy, is a kind of treatment for mental health conditions that may also help patients feel better.

When seeing a therapist, a person has the opportunity to have confidential conversations about problems or worries. Even if it doesn’t solve the problems itself, it might help individuals gain the skills they need to cope with them in a productive manner. It is feasible to combine this method with other types of treatment for mental and behavioral health, such as counseling for drug abuse or family therapy. REB Human Services provides individual counseling, sometimes termed psychotherapy, talk therapy, or treatment, is a one-on-one approach with a qualified mental health practitioner. A broad variety of problems, including those that bring up sentiments of irritation, grief, or anger, may benefit from individual therapy.

  • Expression of thoughts and emotions via communication
  • Behavioral Strategies for the Resolution of Problems
  • The Settlement of the Conflict
  • Possibilities and risks

It is possible for people to have treatment plans that are either minimal (addressing just the most urgent needs) or broad (delving into more complex problems). REB Human Services founder Ryan E. Bates. Ryan Bates will provide recommendations on the number of sessions that a patient will need as well as the frequency with which they should attend. The particulars of this form of therapy vary greatly from one instance of the condition to the next, from one therapist to another, and from one issue to another. Individual psychotherapy is an efficient kind of treatment for a wide variety of mental, emotional, and behavioral health conditions. On the other hand, it could be useful for people who are struggling with difficulties in their lives or who wish to enhance their health and functioning by incorporating new behaviors into their life.

Court Testifying / Expert Witness

Expert witnesses testify in court because they possess specific knowledge, abilities, experiences, or other forms of education or training that may assist a party in establishing its case. The REB Human Services may assist a party in establishing their case by providing them with the assistance of expert witnesses.

The REB Human Services has the ability to request the testimony of an expert witness if they believe that individual is in a position to throw light on the situation as a result of the knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education that they have gained. It has been decided not to ask the expert witness to testify because of their prior involvement in the activities that led to the filing of the lawsuit. When providing testimony in court, an expert typically does so only after being requested to do so freely by either one of the parties or the judge. In contrast to a layman who is testifying to the truth, a professional expert witness is required to be compensated in order to testify. In contrast to a witness who testifies to the truth, an expert witness may provide their point of view. [Case in point:] In the event that they are required to testify, fact witnesses are obligated to keep to the facts that they are aware of about any evidence that they may have seen or been a part of. They are only allowed to provide their opinions if those opinions are founded on their own experiences or if those opinions will help the audience better understand the witness’s evidence.

It is possible to call on experts as witnesses as well. These witnesses may attest to the particulars of your case and provide support to the assertions you make using their comprehensive expertise. They may supply the court with information on the circumstances in your home country as well as the prospect of change, or they may describe special features of your group for the court. A judge’s judgment could be swayed by evidence presented by a neutral third party, such as a professor from an academic institution.

If you have a medical condition and claim that there is no treatment available for you in your home country, or if you are claiming that your removal would cause significant hardship to a U.S. citizen child who has a medical condition, a physician or a psychiatrist could testify about your condition and the lack of treatment available for you in your home country. If a patient is appealing for immigration relief based on the fact that they were tortured in their home country, the doctor treating the patient may be requested to swear that the patient’s scars or symptoms are consistent with torture. Alternatively, they may provide an explanation for your contradictory testimony by speculating that post-traumatic stress disorder or another mental health condition is to blame. According to the needs of its customers, the REB Human Services has a wide variety of expert witnesses available.

REB Human Services will provide clients with an expert witness who is retained to provide testimony as to their knowledge and competence on a certain topic in accordance with the client’s instructions. This witness will testify as to their knowledge and competence on the subject at hand. These instructions will be included in the Expert Witness Report, which will be accessible to both the opposing party and the judge.

When it is necessary, provide the advice either in the form of a report or as testimony in front of a court (or some other authority).

Since it is impossible for the Expert to testify in the absence of the report, its submission is required.

Check to see that the Expert’s Report you’ve been provided has all of the necessary components, as outlined in the Court Rules. Should you want to pursue this matter further, you are obligated to send a copy of the report to the other party. At that time, you will get a copy of the expert report that was prepared by the opposing party.

Be sure to follow the instructions for the relevant procedure as well as any judgements that were handed down by the appropriate court or tribunal.

You shouldn’t worry about whether or not your ideas will aid your case; instead, you should focus on being honest, impartial, and independent.

The court comes first in the obligations that an expert must fulfill (or other tribunal). This responsibility takes priority above any other obligation that may be owed to you, notwithstanding the fact that you are ultimately responsible for paying the expenses incurred by the expert.

The evidence of an expert witness is likely to be disregarded by the court if the witness seems to be prejudiced or if the witness is believed to be biased.

Human Trafficking (T Visa)

T nonimmigrant status is available to noncitizens who are or have been victims of significant human trafficking and who assist law enforcement in their investigations (T visa). The REB Human Services facilitates the acquisition of the T visa for those immigrants who have been the victims of human trafficking. People who have complied with any reasonable request for assistance from law enforcement in the detection, investigation, or prosecution of human trafficking may be eligible for T nonimmigrant status. This status allows people to stay in the country temporarily without having to worry about being deported. This is a benefit for temporary immigration that enables persons to stay in the United States for an initial term of up to four years, depending on the specific circumstances of their case. Direct family members of a victim may be eligible to petition for nonimmigrant status under the T category if they can provide evidence that they meet the requirements and can show that they are related to the victim.

Non-immigrants who are currently in possession of a T visa status have the chance to get job authorization in addition to access to a range of federal and state programs. The REB Human Services is able to assist these individuals in obtaining these possibilities. Non-citizens of nation T who meet the requirements may also be eligible to change their immigration status, and eventually receive a Green Card in order to apply for citizenship in the United States of America. This is provided that they meet all of the qualifications. In October of 2000, as a part of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act, Congress established this nonimmigrant status for the first time. It is often referred to as a T visa. Human trafficking, often referred to as trafficking in people, is a kind of sexual exploitation that is carried out for the purpose of making a profit via the sale of sexual services as well as other forms of forced labor. Victims of human trafficking are exploited for the purpose of making a profit. Those who engage in unlawful commerce often prey on those who lack the legal immigration status required to work in the country legally. T visas not only provide victims of human trafficking an increased level of protection, but they also strengthen the capacity of law enforcement to investigate and punish those responsible for trafficking. According to federal legislation, the most severe kind of trafficking in persons is classified as

When a person recruits, harbors, transports, provides, solicits, patronizes, or obtains another person for the purpose of a commercial sex act where the commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or when the person being induced to perform such an act is under the age of 18, or when a person under the age of 18 is induced to perform a commercial sex act. This is a Class A misdemeanor.

To engage in labor trafficking means to recruit, house, transport, furnish, or procure a person for work or services through the use of force, deception, or coercion for the purpose of involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery. Those who engage in this practice are guilty of human trafficking.

When a person who has been a victim of human trafficking is given a T visa, they are instantly entitled for protections that are comparable to those provided to refugees. These rights include the ability to work and study legally in the United States. In order for the victim to be eligible for such benefits, they must first have their status as a victim validated by the Office of Refugee Resettlement of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

The amount of time needed to complete a T visa might vary. Following the submission of a visa application, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) does not give applicants an expected processing duration or time range within which they may anticipate the issuance of their visa. This suggests that the amount of time required for processing is contingent on the evidence that is presented by each participant. The REB Human Services assists immigrants in speeding up the process of obtaining their T visas.

Victim of Crime (U Visa)

U nonimmigrant status (U visa) is reserved for some crime victims who have experienced bodily or emotional abuse. REB Human Services helps immigrants who are victims of crime to easily get the U visa. U nonimmigrant status may be available to certain people who have been the victims of bodily or mental abuse at the hands of an offender (U visa). With the assistance of the REB Human Services, victims of crime have the opportunity to apply for the U visa. A victim of certain crimes, notably those involving mental or physical abuse, who is able to help law enforcement or government agencies with their investigations or prosecutions may be eligible for nonimmigrant status under the U category (U visa). The Battered Immigrant Women’s Protection Act was one of the provisions included in the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act, which was passed by Congress in October of 2000. As a direct result of this, those who have been victims of violence or trafficking are eligible for the U nonimmigrant visa category. The only people who may join this are those who have been victims of violence or trafficking. The law has two goals: the first is to protect victims of crime who have suffered significant emotional or physical abuse as a direct result of the crime but are willing to assist law enforcement in their investigation and prosecution; the second goal is to increase the capacity of law enforcement to investigate and prosecute cases of domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking of noncitizens, and other crimes. The legislation also has the goal of making it easier for law enforcement to investigate and prosecute offenses including sexual assault, domestic violence, and the trafficking of non-citizens. Additionally, the bill improves the capacity of law enforcement to assist victims of criminal activity.

Under certain conditions, the United States Department of State will consider granting you a U nonimmigrant visa.

  • Because you’ve been victimized by an act that meets the criteria for being considered violent.
  • As a direct consequence of being a victim of a crime, you have been subjected to a significant amount of abuse, either physically or emotionally.
  • You are privy to inside knowledge of the horrific behavior. Your parent, guardian, or closest friend may be qualified to give information on your behalf if you are under the age of 16 or unable to submit information due to a handicap.
  • You assisted law enforcement with the investigation of the crime or the prosecution of those responsible for the crime, or you are doing so at this time, or you intend to in the future, or all of the above. If you are under the age of 16 or unable to assist law enforcement authorities due to a handicap, your parent, guardian, or closest friend may do so on your behalf.
  • Or, alternatively, it was a federal crime that was illegal to conduct in the United States.
  • You do not need to present a visa to enter the United States. If you do not meet the criteria for admission, you have the option of submitting a waiver request using Form I-192, which is an Application for Advance Permission to Enter as a Nonimmigrant.
  • Individuals may get assistance from the REB Human Services in developing their cases, satisfying eligibility conditions, and obtaining U visas.

REB Human Services helps immigrants to establish their cases, qualify for applying for a U visa and finally get the U visa. To get more information contact the REB Human Services today and get consultations about Victim of Crime (U Visa).

Domestic Violence (VAWA)

Many immigrants don’t speak English and are separated from family and often fall victims of domestic violence. The REB Human Services gives easier solutions to get rid of any kind of domestic violence. A federal regulation in the United States that both improves the legal tools that are used to prevent violence against women and protects women who have been victims of abuse. In September of 1994, then-President of the United States Bill Clinton gave his signature to officially make it a law. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is significant not only for the changes it brought to the law but also for the attention it brought to issues of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Together, these issues affect an alarmingly high number of women in the United States. The first version of the Violence Against Women Act was included in Title IV of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. As a direct consequence of the legislation that was passed in 1995, the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) of the Department of Justice was founded. (DOJ). In order to put the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) into operation, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) were assigned the task of administering grant programs to state and municipal governments at the local and state level. The work that is done to prevent and treat instances of domestic violence and child abuse, in addition to educating advocates for victims, is a key emphasis of the funds that are funded by the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Shelters, programs to prevent and educate against rape, activities to minimize the sexual abuse of homeless and runaway teenagers, and education projects pertaining to domestic violence are all financed via funds that are controlled by the Department of Health and Human Services. In addition, the VAWA mandates the conduct of research on the factors that contribute to and result from acts of violence against women. It may be difficult to determine whether or not someone is being mistreated if there was no one else there to witness the abuse or if the victim is too afraid to come forward and report the incident. Because of both of these factors, it could be difficult to determine. Non-violent acts of extreme cruelty include isolating the victim from society, threatening deportation or bodily damage, preventing the victim from working, insulting and humiliating them in private and/or public settings, and so on. Other examples of non-violent acts of extreme cruelty include sexually assaulting the victim or exposing them to harmful substances. The purpose of the Victims of Abuse Act (VAWA) is to give victims the ability to break free from their abusers and start their own lives by allowing them to apply for permanent residency without the consent, aid, support, or participation of the abusive spouse. In other words, VAWA gives victims the ability to apply for permanent residency on their own. It is not required for the abusive partner to engage in the application in order for this objective to be accomplished.

The importance of the therapist’s evaluation of the psychological repercussions of the abuse, as well as the degree and nature of the abuse, cannot be overstated in this circumstance. During the course of your examination, you should discuss the traumatic event, how it has impacted your life, and how it has affected your mental health with the REB Human Services provided that you are comfortable doing so. Taking this strategy could be beneficial to one’s health as well as their sense of self-confidence.

To get more information contact the REB Human Services today and get consultations about Domestic Violence (VAWA).

Political Asylum

The REB Human Services helps immigrants get political asylum after leaving their own country as a political refugee. Applicants for political asylum have frequently stated that, prior to escaping their home country in search of refuge in another nation, they were forced to endure extreme destitution, severe abuse, and even torture in their country of origin. Many of these applicants are fleeing their home country because of the political climate. The victimization is often connected to the persecution, and this is true irrespective of the fact that the persecution is motivated by politics, religion, or ethnicity. In the end, the individual will flee the nation in which they were born and go to the United States, where they will submit an application for political asylum.

In situations in which an immigrant is required to apply for asylum, the objective of an immigration examination is to gain a more in-depth comprehension of the mistreatment that the immigrant has suffered through and to investigate the psychological impact that these circumstances have had on the immigrant. It is not impossible for a person who has been abused to acquire mental health issues as a consequence of their experience, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), severe anxiety, and/or depression. There is a very high probability that this specific result will take place. If you are applying for political asylum as part of your immigration case, it is essential to conduct an evaluation of the breadth and depth of the initial trauma you experienced, as well as whether or not you are still experiencing psychological symptoms after arriving in the United States and the potential duration of the psychological repercussions. If you are still experiencing psychological symptoms after arriving in the United States, it is also essential to determine the potential duration of the psychological repercussions. In addition, it is crucial to evaluate whether or not you are still having psychological issues after landing in the United States. In addition to the legal aid that you are already receiving, the immigration evaluation could be able to help you communicate and record the aspects of your case that relate to your mental health. This would be in addition to the legal assistance that you are currently receiving.

Throughout the course of its existence, REB Human Services has carried out a wide variety of psychological examinations and worked with people who come from a wide range of different cultural traditions. It’s probable that the resolution of your case may heavily depend on how comprehensive and specific your assessment report is. This is something you should keep in mind. It is possible that simply having a safe environment in which to talk about difficulties and stressors, including any traumas that were encountered while going through the immigration process, may be an act that is both liberating and therapeutic in and of itself. This hypothesis is supported by the fact that there is a correlation between the availability of such an environment and improved mental health. Many immigrants are able to gain a greater respect for their resiliency and an awareness of the areas in which they would benefit from receiving more emotional support after listening to accounts of the difficulties, tragedies, and challenges that others before them have had to overcome. This is accomplished by listening to accounts of the experiences that others have had to overcome before them. REB Human Services takes further efforts to guarantee that their strategy is personalized to suit the needs of each individual client since the circumstances surrounding each immigration case are unique. This is to ensure that REB Human Services can best serve their clients.
