Providing Grief Counselling in the Context of Multiple Losses associated with Refugee Trauma and Resettlement – 13 August 2020

28 October 2019



Loss and associated grief are defining characteristics of the refugee experience. This one day clinical workshop will give participants a greater awareness of the key components of loss and grief counselling when assessing and treating refugee survivors of torture and trauma. It will introduce participants to a model of cross cultural grief treatment and its relevance to the refugee resettlement context associated with the loss of loved ones and homeland, change of social status, and a loss of sense of belonging, meaning and purpose. It will give participants practical strategies for how to treat grief, including traumatic grief and assist clients to rebuild their lives in Australia.
