This thesis is about refugees interpretation regarding their trauma experience and inserting that experience into a therapeutic framework. Defining trauma as a form of experience calls for a new angle, providing more space for the refugees to focus on how they attribute meaning to the events surrounding them.
Using four case studies from refugees and one from a mental health care professional the aim of this paper is to capture emerging topics and guidelines during their personal interpretation.
