Violence-prevention and psychosocial support for refugee women, those at risk and counseling for shelters staff
Despite Germany’s large number of experts in trauma treatment, there is a need for staff with specific experience in working with female refugees and victims of gender-based violence in the Arab world. Unfortunately, there are too few Arabic-speaking psychosocial specialists available.
With IsraAID's multicultural experience and Arabic-speaking professionals, the program is able to foster psychosocial support, integration, and empowerment for women and other vulnerable groups. In addition, IsraAID provides culturally-adapted mediation and psychosocial consultation for shelter teams working with victims of gender-based violence within and outside of the shelters.
