Life After War: Education as a Healing Process for Refugee and War-Affected Children

Resources for teachers related to refugee youth. These are Life After War: Education as a Healing Process for Refugee and War-Affected Children 2012 (Full Document ) and the two companion documents Life After War: Professional Learning, Agencies, and Community Supports and War Affected Children: A Comprehensive Bibliography, which are web-based resources that are intended to help strengthen the capacity of school communities at all levels (early, middle, and senior years) to provide an appropriate and supportive school environment for refugee and war-affected learners and their families: an environment that will nurture their mental health and well-being, and that will enhance their educational and life outcomes.
