This guide from the Conversation outlines some strategies for working with refugee children, one of the most vulnerable groups in the world. At least half of the world’s 60 million refugees are children, who often present “complex mental health needs, predominantly emotional difficulties such as post-traumatic stress, depression and anxiety which are compounded by physical ill health, developmental delays, social exclusion and lack of education.” These children often live in extreme poverty and are vulnerable to exploitation, abuse and neglect.
