Workshop Description

This is a live virtual event using Zoom, an online meeting platform. Please check system requirements prior to registering.

Refugee individuals and families carry with them vulnerability, potential post-traumatic stress, as well as strengths and stories of resilience. This workshop provides an overview of the way trauma affects individuals and families emotionally, psychologically, physically, and spiritually. A framework which describes different stages in the process of regulating and resolving the impact of trauma is reviewed, while protective steps for enhancing helper wellbeing will also be provided. Participants will learn key principles and strategies for working with refugees and trauma, and be better equipped to enhance refugees’ capacities to recover, adapt, and flourish in the next phase of their lives.
