Like many refugee children before them, Syrian refugee children currently resettling in Canada may be coping with a range of mental health difficulties as a result of pre-migration, migration or post-migration trauma.
How can parents, teachers, settlement and social service providers assist these school-aged children with these difficulties?
Presenter: Dr. Ghayda Hassan of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM)
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- describe signs warranting specialized mental health support for children vs. the need for stability and integration in post-migration
- list approaches that can be used in the family, school or community environment to help school-aged children cope with difficulties.
