Putting Offence Prevention into Practice

Project description

Treating trauma in young refugees in Europe

Unaccompanied minor asylum seekers (UMAs) have repeatedly experienced severe and traumatic stress and violence. To survive, they often had no choice but to engage in violent behaviour. Consequences include trauma-related mental suffering and heightened levels of aggression in both its reactive and appetitive forms. In terms of interventions for the related psychopathology, forensic offender rehabilitation has been successfully trialled with youth offenders in African crisis regions. The EU-funded POPP project will show that this system can also be implemented in Europe, in aid of UMAs with trauma and delinquency experiences. Ultimately, the project will demonstrate how rehabilitation can support youth with a history of trauma and aggression on the path to mental and social well-being.
