Recovering from Trauma as a Family: A guide for parents and caregivers

Since the summer of 2018, Lumos has collaborated with Immigrant Families Together (IFT), a US volunteer-based organisation working to support children and families affected by forced displacement and family separation.

Many of the children IFT assists have suffered significant trauma as a result of separation or adverse experiences in their home country or en route to the United States. In response, IFT and Lumos have developed a new guide (available in English and Spanish) detailing simple strategies parents and caregivers can use to promote resilience in the family and help their children recover.
