This hands-on guide provides accessible, insightful advice for practitioners who find themselves working with asylum seekers and refugees.

This pragmatic book accompanies social workers, medical staff, educators, charity workers and housing professionals in their daily work, and illustrates the perspective of refugees themselves.
