REHABILITATION, EMPOWERMENT AND INTEGRATION OF ASYLUM SEEKING TORTURE SURVIVORS

Evaluation research results

220 asylum seekers and refugees – potential torture survivors in Croatia, Austria and Germany were assisted and supported to overcome the consequences of traumatic experiences they had survived and were empowered towards integration in the reception countries in the scope of “Rehabilitation, empowerment and integration of asylum seeking torture survivors”.

The rehabilitation and empowerment program consisted of short-term Solution Focused group intervention, individual psychological counselling, psychotherapy, language courses, vocational training and other activities to facilitate their integration in local communities, including housing and job-search support.

Evaluation research was carried out to evaluate the effects of treatment and applied intervention, and the influence of post-migration factors. Results are presented in this publication.
