Chances are you have interacted with people who have encountered traumatic or difficult life circumstances.
If you are not careful these encounters can lead to compassion fatigue, vicarious/secondary trauma, and burnout.
We created this course because we wanted to provide accessible and practical training to help you process your experiences.
Whether you regularly visit or work alongside people in refugee camps across the world, or are involved in the support and settlement of migrant refugees in your neighbourhood, serving displaced people means frequently coming face-to-face with the realities of those suffering acute trauma, loss and displacement as a result of forced or necessary migration. In this environment, the wellbeing of our refugee workers and teams is essential to the ongoing support we can provide to refugees and asylum seekers.
Redcliffe’s Refugee Worker Online Training aims to provide an opportunity to consider those working with refugees, as well as the refugees themselves, and offers vital tools for ensuring that your team remain healthy and able to respond to the needs of those they serve.
