• Sick or Sad? Supporting Palestinian Children Living in Conditions of Chronic Political Violence

      Rabaia, Y.; Saleh, Mahasin F.; Giacaman, R. (2014)
      In this article we reflect on the relatively recent emphasis on Palestinian children's mental health and well-being in the context of exposure to chronic warlike conditions, as we position this trend within the larger framework of the generations-long history of political turmoil and suffering. We describe how a process that started with no attention to psychosocial health of children in relation to exposure to dispossession, expulsion, occupation, repression and military attacks, proceeded with a focus on presumed mental disorders, and the more recent approach of designing context appropriate and community-based psychosocial interventions.
