With the world torn apart from war conflicts, it is hard to imagine that there are real people involved in the dangers of drones and other weapons of destruction. Have you ever asked yourself “what happens after war? How do people deal with its effect? Where are those who have been affected by war?" Agnes uses Refugee simulation, a psychodrama that examines the struggle of the victims of war who come to America from different walks of life as they deal with trauma, loss, change and dis-easy that causes diseases, the struggle, and the stress to fit in their new community, and the courage to face change. Resiliently believing in their courage, recognizing it, defining it and maintaining it, as they build lasting and effective skills for their future in their new found home.
