The Resilience Guide: Strategies For Responding to Trauma in Refugee Children


CMAS (Supporting Child Care in the Settlement Community) has recently released a Resilience Guide to help individuals and teams understand:
• the impact of the refugee experience at different ages,
• the developmental effects of trauma and resettlement,
• key strategies to strengthen families’ capacity for resilience, and
• practical tip sheets designed to easily print out and share with your team.

The report encourages readers to combine the care and compassion shown on a daily basis with the information and strategies included in the guide. With a cumulative effort to work together, the guide can help refugee families heal from trauma and regain the sense of security many of them have lost.
