EFPA: European Psychologists offering their expertise: “The duty to help in the refugee crisis in Europe”

Europe is facing an influx of refugees that is unprecedented in recent times. These refugees are escaping war, violence, terrorism, political persecution and poverty. The community of psychologists in Europe, represented by the European Federation of Psychologists Associations (EFPA) follows on the appeal of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, António Guterres, when he states “Europe cannot go on responding to this crisis with a piecemeal or incremental approach. No country can do it alone, and no country can refuse to do its part (…) The only way to solve this problem is for the Union and all member states to implement a common strategy, based on responsibility, solidarity and trust.”
