Abstract

This article presents research carried out in Turin, Italy, within the framework of the professional training of health professionals working in the migrants’ reception system. The training intervention is part of a larger project involving local institutions working in the healthcare and reception of migrants. The growing psychological vulnerabilities and addiction disorders of migrants in the reception system must be adequately managed by the local reception network. In order to improve access to the healthcare system and to provide more culturally aware responses to users’ needs, the intervention included the design of a number of training programs, aimed at health and social care workers.
