New in our Nation
Resources to promote self-esteem and resilience in young asylum seekers.
Refugee children have often experienced great disruption, violence and fear. They have frequently lost members of their family and may even have witnessed their deaths. They have left everything that is familiar and found themselves deposited in a completely different, strange and sometimes frightening environment. These exceptional resources offer the adults who support these young people a sensitive, honest and practical programme. There is a good balance between affective and skills based activities and, whilst recognising the uncertainty they face, the sessions (eight in New In Our Nation, six in You Are Welcome), all provide a positive focus for the young people and their families. The resource includes copiable material for participants, personal files and posters for display.
