    As Nebraska's resettled refugee populations continue to grow, services must evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of our communities.  For many immigrants, the road to America was not an easy one.  Grief support workers must understand who refugees are, what they went through to get here, and why to provide effective services.  Loss is experienced within a cultural context, and grief is felt and expressed within cultural guidelines and expectations.  Each culture grieves different losses.  How and to whom we attach ourselves varies from one culture to another.  Emotions in grief vary.  However, cultural perspectives not only shape people's reaction to a traumatic experience, they also help define healthy pathways to new lives after trauma.  In other words, to help someone move forward, you need to understand where they are coming from. Q & A to follow.

    This session meets the criteria of an approved continuing education program for mental health practice and social work in the state of Nebraska for 2.0 hours.
    Price: $10.00
