Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Jordan: Psychology, Well-being & Mental Health


Explore approaches to mental health and well-being in Jordan and the Middle East, focusing on human resilience and self-care in conflict and post-conflict environments.

WHY PSYCHOLOGY AND MENTAL HEALTH IN JORDAN?
Jordan has one of the best organized professional fields in psychology, counseling, and mental health in the region, with public, private, local nongovernmental, and international nongovernmental organizations contributing to the science and practice of psychological and mental health of local and displaced people in the country.

Though a peaceful country, Jordan’s neighbors are embroiled in conflict and it has welcomed millions of Palestinian, Iraqi, Syrian, and other refugees, which has significantly affected the psychological and societal make-up and mental health of Jordanians and those who sought refuge in the country. Jordan has several professional organizations, societies, and academic departments focusing on the field of psychology, counseling, and mental health, such as The Jordanian Psychological Association and The Jordanian Clinical Psychologists Association. This program focuses on psychology, counseling, and mental health in conflict and post-conflict contexts and the cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and biological factors contributing to the diverse and interconnected dimensions of physical, mental, and social well-being.

During the program, you will also travel to Turkey on an international excursion to learn how psychological and mental health services are provided there in conflict and post-conflict contexts. The program will provide a variety of site visits and offers two in-country excursions; one to the north and another to the south where students will visit Petra and Wadi Rum.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
