WAR-AFFECTED CHILDREN: A COMPREHENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY
Published by Manitoba Education 2012
This project is the result of the work of a network of immigrant and refugee serving agencies andorganizations who felt that educators would benefit from support materials that dealt with the psychosocial and educational needs of children and youth from refugee and immigrant backgrounds.Manitoba Education wishes to thank Manitoba Immigration and Multiculturalism (formerly known asManitoba Immigration and Labour) for providing the initial support for this document and the manyindividuals who contributed to its development. Many educators, advocates for immigrant and refugeecommunities in Manitoba, and professionals involved in social and health development have contributedto the development of this document. Most importantly, it has been inspired by the thousands of refugeechildren and families who have made Manitoba their new home in the last decade. Their courage,resiliency, and hopes and dreams have inspired educators and other Manitobans from all walks of lifeand continue to do so.
Two companion documents have been published separately, but were developed as part of this initiative. Theseare
Life After War: Education as a Healing Process for Refugee and War-Affected Children
