This workshop will happen in two parts. Participants may register either for Part I only or for both Part I & Part II

Part I

The morning (9:30am – 12:30pm) will be spent helping participants gain a greater understanding of what it means working with young people from a refugee background. 

Throughout the morning we will focus on the recognition of trauma and its impact. We will also touch on what it means to arrive in Australia as a young person.

Participants will be able to identify physiological and somatic symptoms; the effects on emotions and cognition; and the psychological and social effects of trauma. Participants will receive a good understanding of how to confidently foster a safe and supportive environment when working with young people. This is an interactive workshop and will include small group reflection and a case study.

Part II

The second part of the workshop will focus on Managing Challenging and Risky Behaviours in Young People from Refugee and Asylum Seeker Backgrounds and will cover how to manage alcohol and other drug use, self-harm, suicidal ideation and risky sexual behaviours.

This workshop is appropriate for anyone who is involved in supporting young people from a refugee background.
