Why should you attend?
After attending this webinar, the audience leaves with a better understanding of the impact of forced displacement on refugee mental health, grief and trauma, a better understanding of how providers can best support children and families who have been forcibly displaced and are coping with unconfirmed death, and identify practical and tangible resources to facilitate further engagement and skill development, knowing where to access suggested tools and/or outlets to best engage in the work.

  • Engage in community valued, trauma informed regulation strategies that positively impact the process of recovery and renewal.
  • Imagine new ways of incorporating recovery and renewal activities into therapeutic intervention, classrooms and curriculum, peer and student interactions, meeting structures and personal lives.
  • Identify individual and collective protective factors, community assets and stressors, significant loss, trauma and opportunities for growth.
  • Build community capacity and peer support to respond to mental health needs in forcibly displaced communities.

Who should attend?
