Professional Development Calendar

Professional Development workshops have been developed to support services and people interested in working with people from refugee backgrounds. Our sessions are designed to enable those services to gain a better understanding of the experiences that this client group goes through prior to their arrival in Australia, and the impact of torture, trauma and settlement on their lives.
