I have focused on the following questions:

How are refugees suffering from trauma dealt with in social work? How does PTSD influence a refugee's social life and working ability in the work force? What does Exigo stand for and how does it function? How do Exigo's participants perceive this project?

I have chosen the qualitative method when conducting my interviews. I have also chosen a theory evolving around Exigo and PTSD. I have made use of the following theories in my essay. The theories applied are Empowerment, Labelling and KASAM. My conclusion in the study has been based on Exigo and what it stands for.

I have understood that Exigo helps individuals in finding the right path by aide of knowledge, experience and competence. People suffering from PTSD needed the skills which are made available by Exigo. (Less)
