Course #1: International Conventions and Canadian Legislation 

This course provides participants with an overview of the Canadian refugee determination system as well as of the international conventions and remedies applicable in the refugee context. 

Participants will learn to: 
•       study the complex interrelationship between refugee law, state sovereignty, and various concepts of exclusion and inclusion; 
•       evaluate the existing national and international framework of refugee protection; 
•       deepen participants’ knowledge of inland refugee determination process and enable them to apply learned concepts to specific fact patterns presented in case studies; 
•       allow participants to develop practical skills and knowledge of various aspects of refugee law and process that can be useful in their day-to-day work with refugee claimants and refugees; and   
•       share ideas and reflect on the role of the civil society in refugee policy and assistance. 

Course #2: Trauma, Psychological and Psycho-Social Issues and Vicarious Trauma 

In this course we will critically examine concepts of emotional, psychological, and social distress and well- being as they relate to the experience of newcomers. 

Participants will learn to: 
•       become sensitive to the role of culture in the shaping of experience and behaviour; 
•       identify trauma specific reactions experienced by immigrants and refugees; 
•       become familiar with typical, and not-­so-­typical, presentations of distress; 
•       identify strategies designed to ameliorate trauma specific reactions; and 
•       gain an awareness of the limitations of western psychological principles and techniques, particularly as they apply to newcomers. 

Course #3: Settlement Theory and Practice 

This course concerns settlement policies adopted by the countries receiving refugees. The history of refugees in Canada and internationally will be explored in order to understand the refugee experience and how it interrelates with government refugee policies. 

Participants will learn to: 
•       examine the history of refugee policies of receiving country/countries; 
•       explore the incentives for refugee settlement policies and evaluate them; 
•       comprehend the public attitude of the refugees; and
