AAPCSW RESPONSE TO THE UNFOLDING EXECUTIVE ORDER – IMMIGRATION AND TRAVEL BAN

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

The American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work has deep concerns about President Trump’s executive order on immigration and the travel ban from seven majority Muslim countries.
