3.3.1. Consequences of crisis
When individuals are part of a crisis, it can be difficult to see who is affected and in what ways. Disaster and crisis affect individuals and communities but can also have a negative impact on those who work with the victims. It is also important to recognise that every section of a population can be touched by a crisis, but its impact and effects may differ for men, women, children, people with disabilities, the elderly and other groups. This also applies to refugees. These people may have not only experienced disaster and loss in their homeland, but might also have experienced traumatic events during their flight to Europe. Living conditions and the absence of psychological support in their arrival countries can make their situation even worse.
When you, as a sports worker, plan to include these refugees in your session or setting, it is important to consider some basic knowledge.
