Training for Educators & Settlement Practitioners – June 10
August 20, 2019
This FREE training is open to all who work with immigrants and refugees.
This workshop is designed to provide insights, skills, and practical tools for educators working with students in the classroom who may have experienced trauma and are struggling with mental health concerns. The workshop is based on research and expertise developed by Pacific Immigrant Resources Society (PIRS) through years of teaching and learning about refugees in the settlement sector across the Lower Mainland of BC. The workshop focuses on a trauma-informed framework and healing centered approaches so that teachers can engage with students to foster not only language and skill acquisition but also help newcomers develop better mental health strategies, community engagement, and an overall sense of well-being as they transition through their settlement process in Canada.
Along with the workshop, participants will have access to the Community Based Training Guide which will be distributed as PDFs to the participants. The workshop will include practical tips and strategies, resources, and ideas that can help build a more inclusive classroom practice.
