Psychosocial and Trauma Response in War-torn Societies: The Case of Kosovo

The Psychosocial and Trauma Response Programme for Displaced Persons and Refugees from Kosovo (PTR) was initiated in the refugee camps in Albania after the outbreak of violence in April 1999. Following the massive, spontaneous return of the refugees upon the resolution of the conflict, the project’s focus shifted to Kosovo to determine how best to respond to the returnees’ psychosocial needs, while laying the ground for long-term capacity building of the local educational infrastructure.

This notebook contains a selection of papers from the first International Seminar on Psychosocial and Trauma Response in Kosovo, held in Geneva in March 2000.
