project background

In Norway in recent years seen increasing signs that some groups of immigrant origin falls outside the community and welfare programs. Stigmatization, marginalization and radicalization has become central concept in this context. With this basis, integration and inclusion in the community received a large space in the current debate in the media and in the political discussions.

Norway has become a multicultural country. In recent years it has arrived many immigrants from many different nations and cultures to Norway. They have the status either as solitary seeker, family groups, refugees or migrant workers. Foreigners coming evenly divided between Northern and Eastern Europe and from the rest of the world, with an emphasis on war-affected Africans and Middle East. This creates major challenges in the Norwegian society. Many children and young people from ethnic minorities are stigmatized, marginalized and radicalized both at school and in the local nursery environment. These kids have great apostasy from school, some of them due to their disability barrier (Heggen, Jorgensen, Paul Overgaard, 2003).


We must heed us to regard refugees as "sick". When we work with refugees we must still be conscious that "refugees" have an increased risk of developing mental disorders. This applies particularly posttraumatic symptoms, depression and psychosomatic symptoms. Reactions by stresses such as prolonged imprisonment and cruel torture, detention, rape, endangering their own and the therapist's life, difficult flight and a persistent uncertainty both in the home country during flight and during asylum seeker stays, be expressed in various forms of mental illness of reactive as well as chronic nature.


Refugee Families can over time have lived under miserable conditions in refugee camps, or in transit countries. Often they have had to manage with minimal support, little food, poor sanitary conditions, little or no medical care. Some children may show signs of having experienced hunger and deprivation of important periods in life.
In some transit countries, people live under danger of further harassment if they are detected. Women, youth and children are particularly vulnerable to sexual abuse during all flight stages but also after arriving at a settlement land. People who have fared during prolonged stress during flight, may after the arrival of Norway experience powerlessness and be decompensated. Although refugees are located in safe haven in Norway, they may find that migration procedures and meeting with social, health and school authorities as confusing and sometimes offensive (Amalia, 2003).
