Visit to the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme: training in child mental health

  • Abdel Aziz Thabet (a1) and Panos Vostanis (a2)
Extract

The high prevalence of post-traumatic and other psychiatric disorders in children and adults who have experienced violence and war-related traumas are well documented by research (Thabet & Vostanis, 1998, 1999). So far, there has been less systematic evaluation of treatment interventions or training programmes for staff working with traumatised individuals in war zones. Training initiatives have recently been described in countries such as Rwanda (Brandon, 1998). This paper describes the work of a community mental health programme in the Gaza strip, particularly through a visit by P. V. to work with the child mental health care staff.
