Working with refugees and asylum seekers often means helping people in very difficult situations and hearing traumatic, personal stories. Pressure can build quickly. It is easy to feel overwhelmed and, if we're not careful, for compassion fatigue to set in.
How do we protect ourselves from burnout? How do we support refugees and asylum seekers who are struggling? 'Resilience Toolbox' will give you tools in self-care and debriefing others to ensure the emotional wellbeing of those involved in refugee ministry.
Our trainers include:
Dr Debbie Hawker: Debbie is a clinical psychologist. She is a member of the British Psychological Society task force on refugees and asylum seekers. Debbie is author of 7 books, including "Debriefing aid workers and missionaries: a comprehensive manual".
Marion Knell: Marion is an international speaker and works with an international relocation company as an intercultural trainer. She also consults with the Refugee Highway Partnership on care for refugees and refugee workers and leads trauma response for the EEA.
