Migration and Psychology
“Migration and Psychology: Research on Migration and Clinical Work with Refugees” presents research and work with migration issues and refugees.
Welcome to the second breakfast seminar in the series «PSYOPS: The Psychology of Political Struggle».
Among the topics is how we can look at migration issues in a larger context, and treatment of refugees who have been subjected to torture. The major refugee crisis in recent times makes this a very topical and important theme.
