Principles and Strategies to Train and Support Professionals to Work with Refugee Children -
Understanding the Disaster Setting

Parents, therapists, teachers and social workers face conditions of an unprecedented complexity due to the unstable social-political-economic scenario, such as immigration from war zones and the integration of traumatized children into the communities’ daily routine. These events have overwhelmed the capacity of professionals to simultaneous attend to the critical need and demand of a traumatized child -  such as fear, lack of attention, hyperactivity, aggressiveness and apathy - while maintaining the quality of their interactions and learning routines. Ale Duarte proposes a set of principles designed to empower professionals and care takers that work with children from 5 to 12 years old.
