Webinar Recording:  Telephone-Delivered Psychological Treatment for Children in Humanitarian Settings: Results of the t-CETA Study
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: This webinar, introduces the key elements of t-CETA and share first-hand experience of delivering it in Lebanon. The webinar presents 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.

A recording and the slides of this webinar on “Telephone-Delivered Psychological Treatment for Children in Humanitarian Settings: Results of the t-CETA Study” from 24 February 2021 are now available for free on the website (https://www.qmul.ac.uk/sbcs/about-us/our-departments/psychology/global-mental-health/)On the same website you will also be able to download the guidance document on delivering psychological treatment to children over phone.
