Social Therapy with Syrian Refugees in the Bekaa – (Mercy Corps org) February 2013

6 days of social therapy sessions and 6 other days of follow up with 14 Syrian Refugees ( age: 17 to 35) living in Baalbeck. Most of them had just moved to Lebanon in the past 3 to 4 months after facing harsh conditions in Syria.

The group was amazing and they were so good in creating the conditions of their own therapy.

The activities were divided into different parts, among which: collaboration and improvisation using means including music, theatre, poetry, community projects, sports, and storytelling.
Social therapy enables people to experience life in new ways. It does not seek to solve problems, but to help participants accept life’s difficulties and create practical, positive ways to deal with them which they surely did!
