The psychosocial challenges of war-affected children living in Canada are difficult to identify, complicated to understand, and even more troubling to address. This new work by Jan Stewart examines the needs of refugee children and the educational interventions that will offer the best practices for meeting them along with practical strategies for policymakers. Supporting Refugee Children is organized in three parts: the lived experiences of refugee children who immigrate to North America and the challenges and successes that these children and their families experience; the systems, structures, or programs that assist with the process of adjustment for refugee children; and strategies and activities that help newcomer children adjust to life after migration. Each chapter begins with a case study or personal story about the experience of a refugee child or family to illustrate the key issues discussed. A concluding chapter offers recommendations for policy and practice.
