9781442600300: Supporting Refugee Children: Strategies for Educators

The psychosocial needs of war-affected children who migrate to other countries are difficult to identify, complicated to understand, and even more troubling to address. Supporting Refugee Children provides a holistic exploration of these challenges and offers practical advice for teachers, social workers, and counsellors, as well as suggestions for policy makers.

Review:

Stewart has done an exemplary job of bringing to light the difficulties refugee children experience upon resettlement.... A highly commendable piece of work. (Dr. Lloyd Axworthy, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Winnipeg)

Jan Stewart's work is at once scholarly, profoundly moving, and practical. It is helpful not only to Canadian educators and administrators, but also to those in other countries of resettlement. (J. Lynn McBrien, College of Education, University of South Florida)

Essential reading for all educators. With passion and understanding, Stewart shows how young refugees see education as their hope for the future, yet are frequently failed or re-victimized by the education system. Filled with insight and practical suggestions, this book lights the way toward a more humane approach to education. (Michael Wessells, Columbia University Program on Forced Migration and Health)

If we really care about refugee students in our classrooms, we must rethink and reshape our understanding of learning so that our teaching links more fundamentally to the experiences of refugees. Stewart's book responds to this call in a thoughtful and caring manner, providing an insightful classroom-oriented resource for educators and offering a balance of theory, research, and recommendations for practice. (Grace Feuerverger, Ontario Institute for the Studies of Education, University of Toronto)

Anyone forced to flee repression in their home country—anyone forced to leave everything behind—dies a little. When I was a child, my family and I had to gather all of our strength and what little we had to escape to Canada. We relied on the understanding and generosity of those who welcomed us. This book portrays those hardships and shows how the slightest kind gesture or compassionate word can make an enormous difference. (The Rt. Honourable Michaelle Jean, UNESCO Special Envoy for Haiti)
