Webinar: Parenting in times of conflict and war
How can we in the Netherlands provide support for parents and other adults who care for children in these times of great distress due to conflict, displacement and war?
During her webinar on April 21, Prof. dr. Rachel Calam will take a closer look at parenting, as well as parenting and the impact on trauma. She will also explain the background of the information leaflet for adults caring for children during conflict and displacement.
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss with Prof. dr. Rachel Calam how this material can be used as well as how we can learn from it, regarding the support of families in comparable, stressful situations.
This webinar is organized by the Families Foundation, the Dutch Youth Health Center (NCJ) and OuderWijzer.
In the webinar we will learn how positive, involved and warm parenting can contribute to reducing the risks of serious trauma and behavioral problems in children.
How can this kind of involved parenting be supported while families live in shelters, are on the run, feel displaced and arrive in another country? Prof. dr. Alaa El-Khani and Prof. dr. Rachel Calam of Manchester University developed and tested a leaflet of information during the war in Syria which can help answer this question. What lessons can we learn from this about the effects of engaged parenting in other extremely stressful and unpredictable situations?
