The Kagedan Lecture on Social Work and Human Rights - Annual Alumni Homecoming Lecture


SAVE THE DATE:  October 12th, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. in the Wendy Patrick Room, Wilson Hall, 3506 University.

Titled:  Children and Families Affected by War: A Tri-Pillared Approach Research Group on Children and Global Adversity.

The Research Group on Children and Global Adversity will discuss the human rights of war-affected refugee youth and families in Quebec. Using an integrated tri-pillared approach, the topic will be examined from three approaches— participatory, arts-based, and socio-ecological—each using unique strategies to develop tools to better understand the realities and needs of war-affected populations beyond paradigms of trauma and distress. In addition, the research team draws on the expertise and direct contributions from war-affected young people, which are essential to enhancing the knowledge, quality, and direction of our research.

A light dinner will be available as of 5:45 p.m. Kindly send your RSVP to marilena.orsini [at] (Marilena Orsini) by October 10, 2017.
