The scale of the global refugee crisis is staggering. More than 82 million people worldwide have been displaced from their homes. With the increase in refugees from war-torn countries like Ukraine, Afghanistan, and Syria resettling into the United States, Canada, Australia, and European countries, social workers must be equipped to address the unique challenges facing refugees in practice and policy contexts.
This interactive webinar, informative in nature, will inform participants on the scope of the global refugee crisis, exploring the current policies and laws that directly impact refugees from war-torn countries. Moreover, this workshop will also explore the role of social workers to address the specific needs of refugees, drawing on current research to support refugee children, youth, and their families in the U.S. and abroad.
