The psychosocial field in Sri Lanka suffers from a lack of consensus about what precisely constitutes a psychosocial intervention, also at a global level. By using a number of available frameworks and examples of practice in Sri Lanka, the author attempts to demonstrate how it is possible to include the wide range of existing interventions under the ‘umbrella’ category psychosocial. Finally, through the exposition of an emerging conceptual framework offered by the Psychosocial Working Group (Ager & Strang, 2001), the article suggests measures that could form the basis for a broad understanding of psychosocial intervention in contexts such as Sri Lanka.
