Trauma Informed Work with Asylum-Seeking Youth at the Border
April 2, 2021
Providing care and support for children, youth, and families as they navigate the asylum system can be challenging. It can be hard to know how to be as helpful as possible, especially when communication is difficult. In this brief video, two mental health experts with experience within the asylum and immigration systems share their suggestions for providing trauma-informed supports, while reducing the stress that staff and volunteers may experience.
This video is accompanied by a one-page handout reflecting the recommendations.
