Thinking about ethics in the context of refugee experience: old tools, current challenges and new possibilities
Canada takes pride in welcoming refugees from many contexts who arrive for many different reasons. There is enormous potential in the diversity of these persons who bring cultural, linguistic, educational and historical richness to Canadian communities. It is also true that the circumstances and journey undertaken taken to arrive may extract their own toll. Arrival can bring experiences of dislocation, loss, being misunderstood and health issues. Experiences of learning, health care and social supports may fall short or prove inappropriate. Frustration and moral distress can be experienced by providers of all kinds. This webinar examines how we can begin to approach the ethical considerations which underpin these experiences.

You will learn:
•To describe conventional approaches to managing ethical considerations – their usefulness and some limitations.
•To describe in broad terms novel ethical challenges raised by working with refugee communities.
•To introduce possibilities for meeting novel challenges in newer ways with the concepts of intersectionality and trauma-informed care.
