As part of a study looking at social inclusion, a group in the Counselling Psychology department at the University of British Columbia is running a counselling support program for newcomers to Canada. The program will focus on supporting new immigrant and refugee young adults as they transition to adulthood in Canada. We are looking for individuals between the ages of 18-34 who are facing challenges around the transition to Canada- could be related to relationships/family, employment, schooling, cultural barriers, anything! We do ask that individuals participate as a dyad (two individuals) and can be in the forms of spouse, partner, friend or family member (other than a parent).
If you or anyone you know would be interested in this free support program or have any questions, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
