This webinar discusses the risk and protective processes most critical to refugee youth adjustment, provides effective family strengthening models that promote positive youth adjustment, and discusses the latest research on mentoring for refugee youth.
Refugee youth are often burdened by past traumatic experiences while undergoing stress related to resettlement. Supporting refugee youth can aid their successful adjustment to life in the U.S., thereby preventing negative social, psychological, and academic consequences.
Continue the dialogue from the February 8, 2012 webinar, Strong Roots, Bright Futures: Promoting the Successful Adjustment of Refugee Youth co-sponsored by Bridging Refugee Youth & Children’s Services (BRYCS) and RHTAC.
