Migrant children come to classrooms with many traumas educators must address.
The Familias Reunidas counseling guide was developed by the Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia to help. Not all families immigrate together to the United States and this guide is a tool for both parents and their children, many who make the journey north alone, to navigate through the mixed emotions of separation and reunification.
Additional versions of the Reconnecting Families handbook developed through a partnership with Fairfax (VA) County Public Schools are available on the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants. Six books are available on the site.
