Psychosocial wellbeing of returnees: introducing new tools for reintegration counselling. A webinar organized by the EU-IOM Knowledge Management Hub

A webinar session on “Psychosocial wellbeing of returnees: introducing new tools for reintegration counselling” took place on 3 December 2020.  Click here to access the recording!

The webinar discussed the importance of returnees’ psychosocial wellbeing during the reintegration process. In this frame, the online event introduced practical tools to adopt a psychosocial perspective to reintegration counselling and to ensure mental health and social wellbeing through remote working modalities.

Attention to the psychosocial dimension of reintegration, and the psychological, social and cultural challenges that reintegration presents, is an essential part of supporting migrants towards sustainable reintegration, especially in these pandemic times.

  • Mr. Guglielmo Schininà, Head, Mental Health, Psychosocial Response and Intercultural Communication,
