What Lies Beneath- Psychosocial Needs of Refugees

AAISA is conducting a 2-hour introductory session on “What Lies Beneath: Psychosocial Health Needs of Refugees

Have you ever wondered why your client continues to complain of stomach pain and headaches even though their doctor says nothing is wrong? Or why small challenges seem to anger or overwhelm them? Join us for a two-hour introductory session to the psychosocial health needs of refugees to start finding the answers.  This workshop is intended to assist you in your practice when working with refugee clients. The course will provide an overview of refugee health in Alberta and Canada while explore what psychosocial health needs are and their importance. Additionally, it will assist your clients in meeting those needs and incorporate the new knowledge into your work.
