Traumatized Adolescents Seeking Asylum

In the pilot study of the TASA Project, we test several psychological variables related to adolescents’ rehabilitation in a randomised controlled trial. 

From a larger perspective, the key measure is the suitability of a trauma care model in units for minor asylum seekers in Finland. We explore this suitability in two ways:

  1. We study the effectiveness of stabilizing groups and trauma focused treatment (NET) in supporting the adolescents’ mental health. Key outcome measures of the pilot study will be posttraumatic stress symptoms, resilience and working memory. 

  2. We study the feasibility of the model by interviewing all staff members who participate in the study in four pilot units. Open interviews about the challenges and benefits of the overall model will be conducted. 
In March 2017, 15 staff members of group and family group homes were trained to implement TASA group model. The first groups started at the end of March 2017 and the data collection was started.

This page will be updated, as the research progresses.
