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 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 how to effectively assess for the possible intersection of religion when working with triggered refugees or survivors of wars.
• Learn effective ways to manage self-care.
