2018-12-06 00:13:13 | BioPortfolio


To estimate the efficacy of a structured, scalable and replicable psychosocial intervention targeting refugees living in Jordan, Amman who have been forced to flee their homes due to regional conflicts.


The study is designed to examine the effects of the Mindfulness Resiliency Training Program (MRTP) conducted at Collateral Repair Project (CRP) on the resilience of refugees. The study group and the control group will be recruited from refugees currently residing in Amman, Jordan who are participating in the MRTP at CRP, an ongoing program independent of our study.

In order to assess the effect of the MRTP on participant resiliency, the three survey tools described above will be used:

1. the Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) as a measure of the individual's degree of traumatization and

2. the Child and Youth Resiliency Measure (CYRM-12) (for adolescents) or the Adult Resiliency Measure (ARM-12) (for adults) as a measure of resiliency
