Refugee Children

By: Jerri Shepard   Deborah Nieding  

The authors developed a series of stories highlighting animal characters who must overcome considerable cultural challenges in order to fit into new and changing cultural climates. The stories are accompanied by strategies and interventions, which foster a sense of belonging and develop problem solving skills, helping them to navigate new terrain. The process of story telling and strategy development focuses on developing and enhancing resilience in refugee children.
