Research

Sharing best practice
WarTrauma Foundations programmes are implemented in real-life settings, continually evaluated and optimised. An essential aspect of this process is to develop and share innovative knowledge in Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS), best practice and lessons learned.

This pool of collected knowledge forms the basis for scientific research, manuals and other publications to benefit the development and implementation of good quality MHPSS programming, as well as informed advocacy efforts. WarTrauma Foundation continues to invest in development of new methods, training programmes and guidelines, as well as ways to connect people to quality mental health care and psychosocial support.

Intervention
War Trauma Foundation publishes Intervention: Journal of Mental Health & Psychosocial Support in Conflict Affected Areas in order to share and exchange academic insights and developing international standards in mental health care and psychosocial work, as well as provide the latest information gained from practical experience in the field. This cross fertilization, that goes beyond the walls of academia directly to aid workers in the field, is one of the reasons that Intervention is unique among journals, with the aim that both worlds should inspire and support each other.

Training Materials
War Trauma Foundation also publishes training materials and manuals that have been developed with local expertise and in cooperation with other international humanitarian organisations. An overview of training materials can be found here.
