The presenting problems of survivors of multiple or prolonged traumatic events, who are experiencing symptoms of PTSD, and have also faced forced migration, may be complicated by a number of factors. These can include the nature or severity of their symptoms and adversities in their current circumstances. This thesis aimed to explore the subjective experiences of therapists working with this client group with a view to better understanding the therapeutic process and its wider impact on those working in the field. Part One is a systematic review and meta-synthesis of the findings of 14 qualitative papers exploring therapist experiences of working with multiple or complex trauma in forced migrant populations. Part Two is a qualitative study examining how therapists negotiated dilemmas in Narrative Exposure Therapy sessions with traumatised refugees or asylum seekers. It used Tape Assisted Recall (TAR) methodology to explore therapists’ moment-by-moment perspectives of specific therapeutic interactions. Part Three is a critical appraisal of the research process in which the researcher’s key observations, challenges and decisions are discussed relating to researcher reflexivity and the TAR procedure.
