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).

A literature review of school practices to overcome school failure /

by Faubert, Brenton | Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: 2012Description: PDF.Other title: OECD Economics Department. Working paper ; no. 68.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2012 Bibliography : p. 27-30Summary: This working paper was prepared as part of the OECD thematic review Overcoming School Failure: Policies that Work, www.oecd.org/edu/equity. The project provides evidence on the policies that are effective to reduce school failure by improving low attainment and reducing dropout, and proactively supports countries in promoting reform. The project builds on the conceptual framework developed in the OECD?s No More Failures: Ten Steps to Equity in Education (2007). Austria, Canada (Manitoba, Ontario, Qu bec and Yukon), Czech Republic, France, Greece, Ireland, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden took part in this project. This working paper is part of a series of papers prepared for the thematic review Overcoming School Failure: Policies that Work covering the topics of policies to reduce dropout and in-school practices to reduce school failure. These report have been used as background material for the final comparative report Equity and Quality in Education: Supporting Disadvantaged Schools and Students (OECD, 2012), which gives evidence on the policy levers that can help overcome school failure and reduce inequities in OECD education systems. It focuses on the reasons why investing in overcoming school failure -early and up to upper secondary- pays off, on alternatives to specific system level policies that are currently hindering equity, and on the actions to be taken at school level, in particular in low performing disadvantaged schools.Availability: (1)

A new way home : experiences of homelessness for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds /

by Australian Catholic University.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic.Journal of Social Inclusion 2(1) 2011, pp. 39-52 2010; Centre for Multicultural Youth 2010Description: 8 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This article gives voice to refugee young people experiencing homelessness. It is based on a project that conducted interviews with refugee young people and consultations with service providers. The research reveals that the profoundly under-recognised phenomenon of homelessness experienced by young people of refugee background is often hidden and does not match commonly held beliefs about homeless young people. The article examines the nexus between migration and homelessness in young people and how culture and ethnicity impact on young people accessing services. The stereotype of the homeless young person has been in place for many years and has dominated the research literature and the development of services. The study finds that this stereotype is alive and well in the perceptions of refugee young people and the agencies. Young people of refugee background often feel unable to access or attend these services. All the young people interviewed showed a capacity to negotiate new spaces of hope and belonging, despite dwelling in a 'landscape of exclusion? (Sibley 1995)' a testament to their strength, resilience and sense of agency.Availability: (1)

The Low Pay Commission (LPC) has been asked by Government to consider how apprentice pay could be brought under the National Minimum Wage framework.

The report also considers the potential responses of employers to the introduction of a national minimum wage for apprentices.Availability: (1)

by Horn, Michael | Hanover Welfare Services | Cooke, Michelle.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Hanover Welfare Services 2001Description: 27 p. + appendices.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Includes bibliographical references June 2001Summary: Anyone who has visited US cities, such as Washington or Los Angeles, would be shocked at the level of begging evident in the city streets. At the start of the 21st century, it is a striking paradox to see such high levels of poverty within a country often considered an exemplar of the success of post-industrial capitalist economies. Over recent years, the contrast between affluence and poverty on the streets of Melbourne’s CBD has become a matter of public concern and comment.
