The relevance of social therapy in social work with individuals from refugee backgrounds

Yury Maltsev

Abstract

The purpose of this essay is to discuss social therapy as a means of resolving social issues in the context of humanity's shift to open social space and the personal need to feel safe in that space. Following a review of the pertinent literature, the author concludes that social therapy assists refugees in adapting to their new condition by giving assistance in all socially important areas. Additionally, when social therapy is connected to a larger societal objective, participants may aid refugees in developing their own potential. By discussing these concepts, this essay would contribute to the discourse on the critical nature of social therapy.

Asma Siddiqua Rita

Abstract

Personnel motivation is a collection of incentives that influence an employee's work activity. In fact, this is a collection of activities taken by the management with the goal of increasing the working capacity of employees, as well as strategies for attracting and retaining competent and skilled experts. Self-initiated expatriates are included in this category of potential staff. This article discusses the factors that influence self-initiated expatriates’ motivation for work. The discussion is based on materials and fieldwork experiences collected in Estonia during my master's thesis. In-depth interviews were used to collect data. Narrative analysis methods were used to build the analytical framework. The fieldwork experience demonstrated how important it is to consider both financial and non-financial factors while working in foreign companies.
