This PgCert will be a useful qualification if you have an interest in the complex policy and practice issues in diverse settings affected by conflict or countries emerging from conflict. Emphasis will be given to: the concepts of vulnerability and resilience of individuals; households and their interaction with health and social structures in the context of forced migration; the range of actors involved during the humanitarian crisis and transitional period; and the alternative approaches to psychosocial protection of individuals and communities.
