Guest editor Dr Camila Perera

Dr Camila Perera, MPH, is a Research Consultant at UNICEF’s Office of Research. From 2017-2019, she led the implementation of Problem Management Plus for Venezuelan migrants and refugees in Colombia in collaboration with the IFRC Reference Centre for Psychosocial Support, the Colombian Red Cross and Trinity College Dublin. As part of this research project, she investigated the implementation of PM+ when delivered by Red Cross volunteers in a conflict affected region of Colombia and developed a rapid methodology of culturally adapting scalable psychological interventions in humanitarian settings. Camila has experience and training in a wide range of methodological skills, including qualitative and quantitative analysis, systematic reviews and implementation research.


I am excited to join the Editor in Chief and fellow guest editors in curating and discussing new findings from practitioners, trainers, lay providers and researchers of scalable psychological interventions as part of this timely and important Intervention Issue.
