I’m giving a workshop next Tuesday at a conference on the theme of Hope and Resilience for Refugees and Asylum Seekers at Leicester University, as part of National Refugee Week.

Here’s a summary of the conference and its objectives

[stextbox id=”alert”]

This event, funded by East Midlands Strategic Health Authority, is planned to mark national Refugee week and is being organised by the clinical psychology department at the University of  Leicester in  conjunction with a range of refugee and voluntary sector organisations  across the East Midlands.

This one day  conference will be held at the University of  Leicester on 19th June 2012. The theme is Hope and Resilience in the refugeecontext and it will explore how hope and resilience can be fostered in the current climate through an emphasis on human rights, approaches to justice in psychological therapy, and through building solidarity in the voluntary and statutory sector.
