A guide to working with young people who are refugees : strategies for providing individual counselling and group work /

by Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture Inc.

Publisher: Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture Inc. 1996Description: 227 p. ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: "The purpose of this guide is to promote an understanding of the causes and effects of trauma associated with war, state sanctioned violence and the refugee experience, so that recovery and restoration is achieved for its survivors and the communities they are part of. ; The focus is on the young refugee, aged between 12 and 25. The age ; range is wide including those that might be regarded as young adults. ; As a result of war, violence and protracted periods in refugee camps, ; progression through the developmental stages of childhood and ; adolescence is usually delayed. Young refugees aged 20 to 25 therefore still face the developmental tasks of adolescence. Interventions suitable for working with children under the age of 12 will not be covered in Section ; 2 although virtually all the principles described will apply to working with this younger age group. References to children will be made in this section, which describes the psychological and social impact of trauma, because many of the young refugees entering Australia have been ; traumatised as young children. ; The importance of working with the young is underscored by research ; which shows the long-term effects on the psychological and physical ; health of survivors of trauma (4,5), including second generation effects ; (6,7,8). Tragically, one of the reasons the young are targeted is because perpetrators also recognise the long-lasting damaging effects on a community of destroying its younger members" -- IntroductionAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Counselling and therapy with refugees and victims of trauma : psychological problems of victims of war, torture and repression /

by Van Der Veer, Guus.

Edition: 2nd.Publisher: Chichester, U.K. John Wiley & Sons 1998Description: xiii, 191 p.Summary: The first edition of this book was acclaimed as a practical, insightful and humane guide for professionals in mental health, social work and voluntary and government agencies who are concerned with the care of refugees and other victims of political and military violence. These professionals can develop feelings of irritation, disappointment and hopelessness when their work seems not to have the expected result. Successful counselling and therapy require empathy with such victims of traumatic events. But empathy must be based on, and combined with, expertise and knowledge that is both scientific and research-based, and focused on the special needs of these victims. This book is written from the first-hand experience of a world expert in this field, and provides* A practical guide to clinical work with adult, child and adolescent victims* A conceptual framework which places treatment in the context of the main therapeutic approaches* A review of the research evidence that supports these methods of assessment and treatment* Many clinical examples and a full consideration of the special problems of communication across cultures and language barriers* Recognition of the special problems for professionals and volunteers dealing with these clients This new edition reflects the latest scientific and clinical work and knowledge, and will be essential for mental health professionals as well as for a wider readership of social, legal and administrative professionals who are concerned with the wellbeing of these victims. "A supremely accessible, comprehensive text on the effects of detention, torture, rape, exile, and culture shock, and how to understand and effectively help victims. It is also a vivid insight into traumatization and transgenerational suffering, and into transcultural and transtheoretical therapy. Harrowing yet timely, essential reading for frontline therapists and counsellors." -Colin Feltham, PhD, Sheffield Hallam UniversityAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
