Created by Bridging Refugee Youth and Children’s Services (BRYCS)
This course shares statistics and stories on bullying and discrimination among diverse refugee youth, contextualized within a wider discussion on psychological and sociological concerns that this population may experience. It also shares best practices and recommendations for individuals, families, schools, and the wider community in meeting these challenges.
This course is designed for use with teachers but is recommended for social workers, counselors, psychologists, and other human services and behavioral health professionals who seek knowledge about refugee youth and families. It is appropriate for participants with all levels of knowledge about this topic. BRYCS would like to thank the Refugee Center Online (RCO) for its feedback and support in the development of this course. This course is available on the BRYCS website.

- Understand different forms of discrimination & bullying (including cyber bullying, implicit bias, etc.);
