Social Work Interventions in Refugee Camps: An Ecosystems Approach
Ecosystem, Qualitative, Refugee, Social work
This article offers findings from qualitative needs assessment of Kosovar refugees in south Albania at approximately one month following their flight from Kosovo (May, 1999). Common themes emerged from the interview data including trauma and the desire for emotional help, lack of information about loved ones, and the need for activities and self-determination in the camps. Framing these findings within an ecological model of human development, we propose a comprehensive approach to social work interventions in refugee camps. © 2003 by The Haworth Press, Inc.
