Workshop Overview

The Stress and Joy of Immigration: What pre and post settlement experience can offer you here and now?

PTSD, depression and other psychological problems are common among people exposed to war trauma, economic hardship, and oppressive political regimes (STRESS). However, closer exploration of immigrants’ lived experiences and the stories they tell themselves in the process of creating new belonging can illuminate the JOY they share when they find meaningfulness in their new community. While addressing the emotional trauma and stress that many immigrants endure – prior to and post the settlement process, this presentation will focus on the potential for growth resulting from challenging events.
