Diet/Nutrition counselling and its impact on psychological well-being in the context of refugee trauma.

Sivaharani Mayuran

A common symptom and side effect of refugee trauma can be poor appetite. While clients may not identify eating problems themselves, it has been noted that adjustment to diet is a significant factor in both physical and psychological health. In this presentation, Sivaharani explores the importance of diet/nutrition counselling in the context of refugee trauma, drawing on a case study of a 46 year old Muslim Tamil Sri Lankan asylum seeker client with a history of multiple traumas and human rights violations. He managed to flee and arrived in Australia as an asylum seeker.
