Ilajnafsy: web-based treatments in Arabic
Since 2008 the “Ilajnafsy” program has offered people from the Arabic-speaking world who suffer from depression or trauma-related disorders, access to psychological support over the internet. The therapeutic correspondence is conducted in its entirety through a data secure web portal specific to the program. This means that web-based therapies can be utilised as a means of first psychological support in many areas of current or recent conflict.
