This analysis includes 13 studies of interventions in school settings for refugee and war-traumatized youth. Interventions based on cognitive behavioral therapy demonstrate consistent positive results for symptoms related to post-traumatic stress disorder.

Schools provide the majority of mental health services for children and youth. This systematic narrative analysis evaluated interventions in school settings with the aim of improving the mental health or socio-emotional functioning of refugees or immigrants with war trauma. Meta-analysis was not possible due to variations in study populations, treatment approaches, and timelines. The studies included 1,433 participants from 26 countries, aged 3 to 19 years. Three types of interventions in school spaces were identified: multimodal models, creative expression, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT-based interventions showed consistent positive results on mental health, and usually included cultural adaptations.
