Psychological Intervention for Adult Survivors of CRSV
Through this project, a psychological intervention suitable for the treatment of common mental health problems (anxiety, depression, acute stress) in adult survivors of CRSV, called Self Help Plus (SH+), was developed. It featured session plans for workshops, illustrated books and questions for small group discussions. Audio components covered topics such as the effects of stress, and techniques for stress management (such as grounding, mindfulness, living by important values). The package was adapted for use with South Sudanese refugees in Northern Uganda and results of the project showed that SH+ was safe, feasible and potentially scalable psychological intervention for use in humanitarian settings.
