The newest issue of our peer reviewed journal Intervention covers a wide range of topics. In our Special Section, which was created in collaboration with the International Organisation on Migration (IOM), we highlight the dialogue around psychosocial support and conflict transformation. Written by students this section is indeed a special one.
On our current affairs feature we focus on a topic which has been prominent in the newsreels last few weeks “Children ‘disappeared’ at the United States/Mexico border”.
In addition there is a rich diversity of articles on topics such as:
- Integrating psychosocial support at Ebola treatment units in Sierra Leone and Liberia
- Developing a culturally sensitive mental health intervention for asylum seekers in the Netherlands
- Psychosocial interventions for refugee victims of torture in Athens
- Trauma-related mental health problems and effectiveness of a stress management group in national humanitarian workers in the Central African Republic
- Dance movement strategies training to help rebuild social capital in Colombia
- Stigma experienced by families with members with intellectual disabilities in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo (in English and French)
- Highlighting the gender disparities in mental health among Syrian refugees in Jordan
Last but not least there are field reports from Angola and Jordan.
