Support for trauma sequelae disorder

The “atman – Institute for Mental Health and Migration” offers a stabilising, low-threshold service for adults (21-40 years). The aim is to strengthen the ability to deal with psychological difficulties and to cope with everyday life. Methods are taught that help clients to reduce fears and anger, improve concentration, reduce insomnia and find inner peace. Up to 10 individual sessions for stabilisation are possible, which can also be used as preparation for a later therapy.

The aim of the project is to help people to help themselves in case of psychological stress against the background of flight and migration.




  •     Outreach work for targeted support in the case of psychological stress with information about help options in Germersheim and the surrounding area
  •     low-threshold educational offers with stabilizing measures e.g. physical exercises, aromatherapy, trauma sensitive yoga, creative media, relaxation techniques
  •     Individual discussions with specialist therapists for stabilisation (conflict management, strengthening of resources, change of perspective, inner space, imaginative procedures, timeline etc.)
  •     Workshops for volunteers and full-time workers to strengthen their everyday dealings with refugees and migrants with psychological stress


We try to respond to the person concerned individually. Our specialist therapists have different focuses and can thus work with the appropriate methods in a targeted manner. After an initial consultation, a team meeting is held to decide which therapist best suits the client.

People who suffer from particularly severe psychotraumatic secondary disorders usually require specific and qualified trauma therapy, which we arrange within the framework of our network.

Interpreters* are called in if necessary.
