At the Refugee Council we have over 17 years of experience providing trauma-informed, culturally sensitive therapy to refugees and asylum seekers from a wide variety of countries and backgrounds. Our trainers are all qualified specialist therapists with hands-on experience of delivering individual and group therapeutic interventions to this client population and can draw on real-life examples from their practice.
This course would benefit anyone who works with refugees or asylum seekers, without a specific mental health responsibility, e.g. housing officers, education staff, police, voluntary and community organisation professionals and volunteers.
This course is for those who interact with refugees in non-clinical settings and want to have an understanding of the implications of the refugee experience on mental health, how poor mental health might present itself in their clients, and when and how clients might need referral to a mental health practitioner. You will also explore practical ways you can support the mental health of your clients, whilst considering the need for your own self-care.
