Psychosocial Well-being among Refugees is an online course offered in collaboration between Edraak and Jordan University of Science & Technology (JUST). This course, introduces interested learners to the concept of psychosocial aid for refugees that can reduce the debilitating effect of psychosocial and mental dysfunctions that refugees may have due to their refugee experience. It provides an opportunity for learners to explore communication best practices as well as psychosocial intervention strategies and approaches they can use with refugees and most importantly protect themselves from the possible emotional side effects that could happen when dealing with refugees' problems.
