Event description

Description

Working with refugees and asylum seekers often means helping people in very difficult situations and hearing traumatic, personal stories. Pressure can build very quickly. It is easy to feel overwhelmed and, if we're not careful, for compassion fatigue to set in.

How do we protect ourselves from burnout? How do we support refugees and asylum seekers who are struggling? 'Resilience Toolbox' will give you tools in self-care and debriefing others to ensure the emotional wellbeing of those involved in refugee ministry. Our trainers include:

Dr Debbie Hawker: Debbie is a clinical psychologist. She and her husband support mission organisations around the world. Debbie has served short-term in over 30 countries. She is a member of the British Psychological Society task force on refugees and asylum seekers. Debbie is author of 7 books, including "Debriefing aid workers and missionaries: a comprehensive manual".

Marion Knell: Having worked in the area of Member care at European and Global level and instituted an MA in the subject, Marion now consults with Refugee Highway Partnership on Care for refugees and refugee workers and leads trauma response for the EEA. She has developed courses for churches on working with traumatized refugees and sustaining refugee workers. She is an international speaker on Staff Care and works with an international relocation company as an intercultural trainer. She has written two books, “Families on the Move” and “Burn-up or Splashdown – the survival guide to re-entry”.

Lunch included on the day.
