We, at Focusing Initiatives International, believe that each of us is intimately connected to our community and that our own wellness is reflected in and responds to the wellness of the community as a whole. That is what psychosocial support (PSS) is all about–the healing of the individual and their community–by enhancing wellness skill sets for both. This course is specifically designed to help PSS workers in INGOs NGOs and CBOs facilitate healing, positive change and peace in communities in distress. Based on 30 years field experience in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Japan, Liberia, the Middle East and Mexico, our modules will lead you through activities that: 

  • improve community connections;
  • identify local paths to resilience to address local problems;
  • explore spiritual connections that can strengthen inner lives; and
  • bring self-care into your own life.
