Refugees and survivors of war are often left to face a lasting impact that trauma, violence or risk of violence may cause. Even after making the journey to a safe country, the immigration process (resettlement and acculturation) may also cause a stress that could have an impact on refugees’ and survivors of wars’ physical and mental health.
This interactive workshop will provide both a conceptual framework and practical skills for assessment and interventions when working with refugees and survivors of war.
Throughout this workshop participants will:
- Gain an understanding of the effect of torture, violence or risk of violence.
- Understand the effect of migration and post migration trauma.
- Learn and practice effective skills for working with refugees and survivors of wars.
- Learn and practice effective skills for working with triggered refugees or survivors of wars.
- Learn how to effectively manage issues of religion and spirituality while working with triggered refugees or survivors of wars.
- Learn effective ways to manage self-care.
