RAN REHABILITATION - The time aspect of rehabilitation

Tuesday 4 April 10.00 – 16.00h CET - This meeting will take place online.

Background and aim of the meeting

Due to the highly individual nature of the process, it is difficult to determine an exact timeframe required for the rehabilitation of individuals leaving a violent extremist group and/or abstaining from radical thoughts. The myriad of factors involved in how long this process might take include the willingness of the client to accept help, how quickly trust can be built between client and counsellor in order for the client to open up emotionally, as well as external factors in the client’s immediate environment, such as whether or not a support network exists. Overall, there is a hesitancy from exit practitioners and organisations to label interventions successfully completed and thus assessing a client as conclusively rehabilitated.
