Appraisal of psychosocial interventions in Liberia

Jeannette Lekskes, Susan van Hooren & Jos de Beus, 2007

This article presents the methodology and results of a study on the effectiveness of two psychosocial interventions targeting female victims of war related and sexual violence in Liberia. One intervention provided counseling, the other offered support groups and skill training. Qualitative research suggests that the participants of both interventions were positive with regard to the help provided (Intervention 2007, Volume 5, Number 1, Page 18  26).
