Aims and benefits
Implementation of TV-KVT
The subproject provides training in evidence-based trauma-focused psychotherapy (TF-CBT) to psychotherapists. Training consists of an online training course, as well as an instructor-led 2-day workshop and supervised case consultations. The primary goal is the evaluation of strategies for the implementation and dissemination of TF-CBT. In addition, treatment fidelity, completed TF-CBT cases, and symptom improvement are evaluated.
The subproject aims to improve the psychotherapeutic care of unaccompanied young refugees in the German health care system.
The main goals of this subproject include:
- Preparation of the TF-CBT training
- Extension of the TF-CBT treatment model by three sessions on relapse prevention and problem solving on issues related to asylum procedures
- Updating the online training (https://tfkvt.ku.de/) with culturally adapted materials
- Recruitment and training of local therapists within study clusters to implement TF-CBT within the BETTER CARE model
- Establishing collaboration between CYWS facilities and therapists, and monitor referral procedures
- Implementation of TF-CBT trainings for local psychotherapists (instructor-led 2-day workshop)
- Continuous evaluation/quality assurance
- Provision of case consultations
- Evaluation of TF-CBT dissemination and implementation process
Training of language interpreters for trauma-focused therapy
The primary goal is to prepare language interpreters for trauma-focused therapy (TF-CBT) to ensure that the young refugees can gain access to trauma-focused therapy independent of their German language skills and to encourage cooperation between all relevant stakeholders in the field (e.g. social workers, therapists, language interpreters).
- Inclusion of 120 interested language interpreters in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. Therapies take place in the regions where the young people live. Language interpreters from all regions in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg and for all languages may therefore participate in the training.
- Improvement of psychotherapeutic care for young refugees through widespread training of language interpreters, which may also improve access to care beyond the project.
- Findings about the work of language interpreters in the field: A short online survey (15 minutes) on prior experiences of the participating language interpreters. As an expense allowance, all participants will receive a voucher worth 20€.
Registrations for the language interpreter workshops (4h duration) are possible at any time by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
