This one-day introductory workshop has the same structure as the “Core Concepts in Working with People from Refugee Backgrounds” (it is not necessary to do both) but focuses on providing a framework for understanding the unique issues and challenges faced by refugee children and adolescents. It will look at the impact of war and violence from a developmental perspective, with attention paid to attachment and resilience.
- The Complexity of the Refugee Experience
- Problems Faced and Interventions to Facilitate Refugee Resettlement
- Difficulties Faced by Young Asylum Seekers
- Worker Skills: Key Principles and Techniques
- Vicarious Trauma, Boundaries and Self Care
Relevant to anyone interested in the issues faced by child and adolescent refugee survivors of torture and trauma, and is a pre-requisite for those wishing to do some of STARTTS’ specialist workshops.
