In order to effectively assist new Syrian refugees to come to Canada, adequate evidence-based psychological support must be in place. The provision of psychological services should not depend on the diagnosis of PTSD or the presence of related psychiatric disorders (eg, depression). On the contrary, providing support to all refugee assistance seekers, including those with only atypical symptoms, can enable them to cope with adjustment, and despite their potential problems allow them to integrate into their new life. community and face real socio-cultural changes.

Proof of this is the use of the Harvard Trauma Questionnaire (HTQ) – Injured Trauma Questionnaire, the Hopkins Symptom Checklist-25 (HSCL-25) – Hopkins Symptom Checklist-25 (HSCL-25) and Post Migrational Living Difficulties (PMLD) – Post-Migratory Disorders used to exclude cases of Clinically Administered PTSD Scale (CAPS) – Cases of Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD) Clinically Administered for the diagnosis of PTSD in Iraqi, Kurdish and Syrians in Canada. Narrative Exposure Therapy (TEN) is the psychological treatment that contains the most important evidence base in this population. This systematic review focused on the prevalence of assessment measures, of treatments and biomarkers used in the diagnosis and treatment of PTSD in Iraqi, Kurdish and Syrian refugees. Further research on biomarkers to objectively improve and express the psychological assessment and treatment of PTSD in Canadian refugee populations is recommended.
