This new webinar is part of our series of 3 on the well-being of healthcare workers and the support of refugees during COVID-19. This presentation will focus on the intervention with refugee or asylum-seeking families and their children, including intervening using virtual platforms.
Rachel Kronick, child and adolescent psychiatrist at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, will develop the following points:
- The unique and shared psychosocial stressors experienced by refugees and asylum seekers during COVID-19: pre-migration trauma, post-traumatic resilience, structural and socioeconomic disadvantages (social determinants of refugee mental health);
- What are some enduring principals we can use to guide our interventions (for example, the ADAPT model from Derrick Silove);
- What are the specific needs of families: how can we support adolescents? How can we support children with special needs in refugee families?
- How can we use telepsychiatry (virtual interventions) effectively? What are the possibilities and limitations.
