Narrative Exposure Therapy is a short-term and evidence-based therapy. The goal of this therapy is to restore human psychosocial functioning. This therapy has been more effective in refugees than traditional treatment methods and has shown that it will reduce post-traumatic stress disorder of war victims.
The MindSpring programme is a group-based programme for refugees that supports coping in a new and foreign country. Participation in the programme raises awareness of the group members, and provides new knowledge and skills that help to understand the new situation and cope with daily challenges better, prevent problems and create a basis for a social network.
