Researchers and therapists worked together to develop a unique form of psychotherapy for vulnerable refugees during this project. During its three-year lifespan, 80 refugees were first examined and then treated.
|Project dates||01/01/2008 - 31/12/2010|
|Total budget||€411 886|
|Name of the entity managing the project||University of Konstanz|
Together with the non-governmental organisation ‘vivo’, Konstanz University’s department for clinical psychology developed concrete methods for psychological diagnosis and therapeutic support for refugees. The focus was on treatment and care for particularly vulnerable refugees.
The project produced both practical and scientific results. On a scientific level, scientists across the whole of Europe will benefit from this new knowledge. This will feed into ensuring the best standards of care for traumatised refugees in the form of therapy that is both effective and efficient, and in line with the very latest knowledge.
Some 80 refugees were first examined and then treated during the course of the project.
The project results will be made available and disseminated around Germany and the EU.
