International Trainings

Dr. Parke has also taught internationally in Thailand twice, as part of a team providing training to adult caregivers in the orphanages of northern Thailand. The training equipped them to care for the Thai orphans and Burmese refugee children at the orphanages. It consisted of a curriculum including content about a psychosocial view of people, trauma, effects of trauma, coping, and caregiver self-care as well as sustainable community-building between the caregivers themselves.


Dr. Parke has also worked with Syrian refugee youth during two trips to the Turkey/Syria border, as part of an international team of mentors through the Karam Foundation. The trips involved training adult teachers (themselves Syrian refugees) to understand youth in the classroom context as well as facilitating workshops regarding coping and resilience with children/teenagers who are Syrian refugees.
