New guide helps Canadian educators meet the needs of refugee students

A new resource, published by Canadian non-profit CERIC, has been developed to help Canadian educators meet the needs of immigrant and refugee youth in Canadian schools, including those who are unaccompanied or have been separated from their families. According to the organization, "Bridging Two Worlds: Supporting Newcomer and Refugee Youth is authored by Dr Jan Stewart, Professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Winnipeg and Dr Lorna Martin, President Emerita of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). The book provides teachers, school administrators and counsellors with practical resources to help students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 navigate school and connect it to careers and their future." The guide is available for purchase online or can be downloaded for free.
