Traumatized Adolescents Seeking Asylum

Two notable gaps exist in treatment for trauma-related symptoms among unaccompanied minors in the current health care system in Finland. 

Gap 1: Trauma treatment is only available for few asylum seeking or refugee adolescents with trauma symptoms. Psychiatric units are an insufficient source of treatment for this vulnerable group. Trauma-related symptoms are observed daily in reception units for minors. 

Gap 2: There is a mismatch between asylum seeking or refugee adolescents’ needs and customs and the provided services (Pottie et al., 2011). Stabilizing and trauma focused methods should be used as a continuum, so that trauma focused treatment can be employed when necessary, but not before ensuring an adequate sense of security and supporting the client’s existing resources. There is also a clear need for culturally sensitive CBT-based methods (such as NET). 

The TASA project seeks to fill in these gaps by searching for ways to build such a treatment continuum among unaccompanied minors.
