UNICRI Co-hosts a Training of Trainers Course for Psychologists and Social Workers

UNICRI co-hosted the “Training of Trainers Course for Psychologists and Social Workers on Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Violent Extremist Offenders (VEOs)” in prison settings with the Rehabilitation Centres Department and Jordanian Corrections on October 22-24, 2018. The purpose of the training program is to enhance the skills and capabilities of social workers and psychologists so that they could provide better treatment to VEO inmates. The training program participants completed a series of training modules in Amman, Jordan on how to utilize pragmatic reintegration and rehabilitation strategies.  The program was created to address and reduce violent extremism in prisons. UNICRI is a member of the Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force (CTITF) of the United Nations and implemented a significant international initiative and supported member states since 2012 in establishing reintegration and rehabilitation programs for foreign terrorist fighters and VEOS.
