Led by the Refugee Trauma and Resilience Center in Boston and in collaboration with the UCLA-Duke University National Center for Child Traumatic Stress, the NCTSN presents this webinar series designed to cover the impact of trauma on children during all phases of their migration journey. Nationally recognized speakers from NCTSN are joined by experts from the Irving Harris Foundation’s Professional Development Network to provide best practices for culturally responsive and trauma-informed provision of services. This series features diverse expertise from the fields of refugee and migrant health, cultural studies, mental health, early childhood development, childhood traumatic stress, trauma-informed systems of care, and secondary traumatic stress.
Join us for the first webinar in the series – Part 1: Culture, the Migration Journey, Trauma and Assessment
In this webinar, developed by Lisa Fortuna, MD, Alisa B. Miller, PhD and Saida M. Abdi, MSW, foundational information is offered related to the intersection of culture, the migration journey, trauma and assessment in relation to unaccompanied children. In addition, recommendations for providing trauma-informed and culturally responsive care and best practices for child-friendly assessment and working with interpreters are shared for individuals who have direct contact (e.g., care providers) or work with those with direct contact with (e.g., supervisors) with unaccompanied children.
