Living Bibliography of Refugee Psychology and Psychosocial Interventions Resources

Following the very successful UEL Forced Migration Conference 2020 on Psychosocial theory and practice: What is the evidence?, and as an initial step forward on our Refugee Psychology and Psychosocial Interventions History project, I have uploaded an initial bibliography of resources taken from materials available in the Refugee Council Archive at UEL.  We will be adding references to this Bibliography as the project progresses.

If you know of any materials that could be submitted either the Bibliography or as a part of our open access digital archive, please do contact us by using the link to the online form below:
