Risk, Resilience and Rights: therapeutic approaches to working with children, families and separated young people who are survivors of torture

Are you a health or care professional who works therapeutically with separated young people, children and families who are refugees or seeking asylum in the UK?

Asylum seekers and refugees, many of whom are survivors of torture or other degrading human rights violations, may present with complex needs. This course – Risk, Resilience and Rights - helps practitioners unpick the complexity and support survivors of torture confidently.

Risk, Resilience and Rights is made up of four modules over 14 days, allowing you to pick and choose the courses that most meet your learning needs.
