Refugees are vulnerable and may experience post-traumatic stress because of their circumstances. However, their stories also demonstrate strength and resilience. This workshop provides an overview of the way trauma affects refugee individuals and families emotionally, psychologically, physically, and spiritually. A framework for regulating and resolving the impact of trauma will be provided, along with protective steps to enhance helper well-being. Participants will learn key principles and strategies for working with refugees and trauma, and be better equipped to help refugees recover, adapt, and flourish in the next phase of their lives.
