For institutions working with disadvantaged groups, we prepare special trainings that can be adapted to their own programs. With these trainings, we aim to increase the sensitivity to trauma and improve the capacity of different people and institutions on mental health and psychosocial support. We also organise support programs for field teams to help them cope with the emotional burnout syndrome they may be experiencing.
The program was created for all employees of the office and field staff primarily Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) units and other humanitarian assistance programs. In order to increase the child protection capacity and to apply the most appropriate procedures, MHPSS needs to be firmly established and field experts should be trained. These trainings aim to ensure that employees are prepared for both emergency situations and that they are protected from the effects of secondary trauma.
