AMSSA invites you to register for the new BCSIS E-learning workshop on Refugee Mental Health, which is now available on the AMSSA Learning Management System site. The online workshop has been developed for front-line Settlement staff working with Refugees.
All refugees are survivors of trauma to some extent, and Refugee Mental Health is complex, because the refugee experience is characterized by danger, loss, and uncertainty. The training module identifies different refugee categories in Canada, stages of refuge and resettlement stress factors that contribute to mental health challenges for Refugees. It describes approaches and practical tools for assessing refugee trauma and addressing mental health needs. The module will help front-line workers recognize the signs and symptoms of vicarious trauma/burnout and best practices for self-care.
AMSSA anticipates high registration demand, so please note it can take 3 – 5 business days to register users to the AMSSA Learning Management System. AMSSA encourages team members to take the workshop together as a group.
