There is broad international consensus that education provides a pathway towards rehabilitation for children affected by conflict. However, educators working in the field of refugee education must negotiate the complexity of trauma and utilize psycho-social protection strategies if educational interventions are to be successful. This case-study explores how two teachers employ psycho-social protection strategies in the context of a non-formal refugee education program in Lebanon. The data shows how the two participating teachers draw upon their personal experiences as refugees when inductively creating educational practices that help to ensure the psycho-social wellbeing of the children in their care.
