Psychosocial Support Model for Children Associated With Armed Forces and Armed Groups in Nepal
This book was prepared to research and subsequently design and implement a suitable psychosocial support program for Children Associated by Armed Forces and Armed Groups (CAAFAG) in Nepal. The drive to reintegrate children associated by armed forces and armed groups provided an opportunity to examine the needs of this population and obtain responses to previously unanswered questions. What are the reasons why children join with armed forces or armed groups? Do children associated by armed forces and armed groups show more psychosocial distress compared with other vulnerable children? What are the obstacles to successful reintegration? Can psychosocial support during the reintegration period be beneficial to the process? This book presents research into these questions as well as a description of the developed psychosocial support system.
This book was published on February 2010 by TPO Nepal.
