Empowerment Practice with Refugees: Communities in Transition
Course participants will learn applications of empowerment practice with displaced populations across a transnational continuum of forced migration, including flight, internal displacement, asylum-seeking, repatriation, and resettlement. Instruction will take place through classroom activities, workshops with local service providers, and agency-based projects. The complexities of transnational identities and implications for strengths-based social services will be addressed, with examples drawn from populations from the Horn of Africa and elsewhere.
