Working Systemically with Refugee Couples and Families (The Systemic Thinking and Practice Series) (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Shadi Shahnavaz
This stirring and insightful book explores how family dynamics among refugees are affected by the trauma of forced migration.
Written by an experienced family therapist, it uses a systemic perspective to understand the impact on couple relationships and parenting, as well as the broader issue of cultural and social assimilation. Shedding light on the complex and relational nature of the trauma experienced by refugee families, including issues around gender and mental health, Shadi Shahnavaz examines the clinical implications for those who care for them. The unique, in-depth interviews with refugees provide a rare insight into their journey to England and the adverse experiences they encounter along the way. Rather than a simple reflection on practice, Shahnavaz invites the reader to think about the ways in which they can connect with others, even in challenging and unfamiliar situations.
Working Systemically with Refugee Couples and Families is essential reading for any therapist or counsellor working today.
