Hope and Resilience Conference
- June 15, 2012
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
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.
