What will this webinar cover?
Newcomer children and families often experience significant stress and adversity throughout their migration and resettlement. These experiences may be associated with changes in behaviors, beliefs, and attitudes that resettlement service providers may find challenging. This webinar will equip service providers to respond to children and adolescents in a supportive, empathetic, and empowering way by using a trauma-informed, rights-based approach.
