Description

This workshop is FULL. Please contact our office to be placed on a waiting list

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 physically, psychologically, socially and spiritually.  Impact and recovery from the migration experience will be examined through a neuro-psychological lens as well as a meaning-making lens to identify key areas helpers can focus their support. Participants will be given an opportunity to understand their own response as helpers to working with refugees and trauma so they are better equipped to enhance refugees’ capacities to recover, adapt and flourish in the next phase of their lives.

Please note – Free admission is limited to 2 people from each organization.
