The demand for rehabilitation services to meet the needs of displaced persons at each stage of the migration process is an urgent and growing global issue. Trauma-informed care is a healthy, informed attitude maintained by all staff towards every client served in a holistic and all-encompassing way. Rehabilitation professionals are uniquely qualified to provide trauma-informed care due to the close working relationship and amount of quality time spent with patients/clients. In this one-hour webinar, Eric Weerts and Sue Piché will discuss how to provide trauma-informed care while working with displaced persons and survivors of torture.


The aim of this Webinar is to provide an opportunity for further information and Questions and Answers following the Understanding the Rehabilitation Needs of Displaced Persons Programme.
