Project Details

Abstract: 

The course “Designing Effective Rehabilitation and Reintegration Programs for Countering Violent Extremism” provides instruction on how public health professionals, education professionals, and other community members may collaboratively address the multidimensional needs of individuals and communities contending with violent extremism. This course is comprised of three modules on countering violent extremism based on multiple completed and ongoing START research projects conducted over the past ten years.

After a first introductory module, the second module, “A Trauma-Informed, Whole Community Approach to Rehabilitation and Reintegration for Countering Violent Extremism”, explores the importance of Trauma-Informed approaches to healing for countering violent extremism and taking a whole community approach to countering violent extremism. The third module, “Community Considerations for Rehabilitation and Reintegration for CVE”, describes and explains lessons learned for CVE reintegration from research and practice.

These three modules include approximately 2 hours of instruction in total that will enable the learner to describe how public health professionals, education professionals, and other community members may collaboratively address the multidimensional needs of individuals and communities contending with violent extremism, specifically around issues of rehabilitation and reintegration of former violent extremists.
