Telephone-Delivered Psychological Treatment for Children in Humanitarian Settings: Results of the t-CETA Study
We are pleased to announce a free online webinar on “Telephone-Delivered Psychological Treatment for Children in Humanitarian Settings: Results of the t-CETA Study" on 24 February 2021. Please register and join us for this opportunity to hear about our recent research findings from a mixed-methods study on phone-delivered psychological treatment of Syrian refugee children in Lebanon. The line-up will include presentations from colleagues at Queen Mary University of London (UK), Johns Hopkins University (USA), Médecins du Monde (Lebanon), American University of Beirut (Lebanon) and Restart (Lebanon).

Background: Many children in humanitarian settings with a need for psychological treatment cannot or do not access mental health services. Refugees face restricted access to conventional primary health care centres and the humanitarian health organisations working in such areas are confronted with many obstacles. In order to overcome these, we adapted and piloted a transdiagnostic psychological treatment programme, Common Elements Treatment Approach (CETA), for delivery to Syrian refugee children in Lebanon by trained lay counsellors over the phone. The newly adapted telephone-delivered CETA (t-CETA) facilitates the provision of psychological intervention for children in humanitarian emergency and other low-resource settings with limited access to mental health services. This project was funded by R2HC.

Webinar: During this webinar, we will introduce the key elements of t-CETA and share our first-hand experience of delivering it in Lebanon. We will present qualitative and quantitative research findings on the feasibility, acceptability and efficacy of the programme, and share free resources that were developed as part of the project. There will be opportunity for the audience to ask questions.
