Intervention March 2016 edition is released


The latest issue of Intervention (14.1) mainly focusses on the aftermath of an emergency or conflict, and the lasting impact on humans and communities. Some articles address the challenges of working within the setting of an on-going conflict. 

Intervention opens with the dramatic effects short-term interventions of humanitarian organisations and mental health professionals can have. Without embedding provided services into existing structures, there is the risk that structures to support people will collapse or that any positive achievements will fade away.

This issue further entails two personal reflections, addressing respectively the story of a Somalian woman who fled her country and is now a counsellor for other refugees herself; and the experiences of a trainer who trained border security, police, volunteers and aid workers in psychological first aid in Greece.
