Because of the dangers of COVID 19, Voces’ team of volunteer expressive arts therapists, practitioners and educators do not currently have a trip planned to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Our last trip to the region to work with refugees was in March 2020 and we hope to be returning to offer programs in 2021. However, we are still actively participating in fundraising for refugees and asylum seekers in Ciudad Juarez while developing and offering ongoing online trainings in expressive arts therapies. We are also offering weekly supervision to clinicians and caretakers who are supporting the refugees at seventeen shelters round the clock. Your donations are greatly appreciated.
In December 2020, Voces completed a ten-module training for Desarrollo Integral de la Familia (DIF), the equivalent of the National Association for the Protection of Children. Members of Voces created and presented ten modules of webinar trainings for those shelter support staff and therapists in the region who would like to integrate expressive arts therapies into their work with asylum seekers. Each module addresses specific interventions that can help with the added challenges asylum seekers and immigrants now face with the COVID 19 pandemic. We are also offering free weekly counseling support to service providers in the Ciudad Juarez region.
