Invitation to join the the RefugeesWellSchool Webinar & Workshops

The RefugeesWellSchool (RWS) is an EU Horizon 2020 research project that implemented and evaluated preventive psychosocial interventions in schools in order to promote the well-being of migrant and refugee adolescents. The project took place in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and the UK. RWS implemented five interventions, all focusing on enhancing social support, social networks and social cohesion, namely:

  • Classroom Drama
  • Welcome To School
  • Peer Integration & Enhancement Resource
  • In-Service Teacher Training
  • In-Service Teacher Training with Teaching Recovery Techniques

You can learn more about the project here.

To share their knowledge and main findings, the RWS project is happy to invite you to its Webinar & Workshops on “Interventions to promote the well-being of migrant and refugee adolescents in schools” on 21st of March 2022

The Webinar will take place from 10:00 to 13:00 on 21st of March 2022.  RWS researchers and invited speakers will talk about migrant adolescents’ mental health and well-being in schools. We will also present some results from the RWS project on migrant and refugee mental health, the role of schools and the effectiveness of our interventions.  Prof. Mina Fazel will give a keynote on “Reflections on belonging: The role of schools in refugee health“.

The Workshops will take place from 14:00 to 15:30 on 21st of March 2022.
