This one-day introductory workshop is designed to put a framework of understanding around working with refugees and asylum seekers. It focuses on understanding the link between what refugees have been through, the sorts of issues and behaviours refugees may present with, and how to work in a way that promotes recovery and minimises the risk of retraumatisation. Participants will be encouraged to think about how to apply the concepts to their own workplace, and will leave the workshop feeling more confident in utilising their skills and experience with refugee clients.
- The Complexity of the Refugee Experience
- Problems Faced and Interventions to Facilitate Refugee Resettlement
- Difficulties Faced by Asylum Seekers
- Worker Skills: Key Principles and Techniques
- Vicarious Trauma, Boundaries and Self Care
Relevant to anyone interested in the issues faced by refugee survivors of torture and trauma.
