This 3-hour workshop will explore how complex and often traumatic loss, grief and bereavement impacts on children, young people and their families who are seeking asylum in the UK. It is designed to help those who work within this area - including those in the education, health, social care and voluntary sectors - gain an insight into and understanding of how best to provide support.
