Reflecting on the experiences and psychological needs of unaccompanied asylum-seeking, trafficked and refugee young people
15 May 2017
This workshop gives both an overview and an in depth discussion into the multi-faceted needs and unique challenges of unaccompanied asylum-seeking, trafficked, and refugee young people.The presenter has extensive experience of working with unaccompanied asylum-seeking young people in the UK and cross-culturally including in Africa and Asia. This day seems integral given the current international context and provides practitioners with a deeper understanding and knowledge of both the theory and practical side of supporting unaccompanied asylum-seeking young people, and the systems around them such as foster carers and schools. The workshop is full of case studies, experiential exercises, and powerful video clips. Wider issues are also discussed such as working with interpreters and the power of the media.
