This is an ongoing series designed specifically for humanitarian aid workers who want to enhance their skills for self care and community care.April 30, 2020 10:30 am
This week we want to explore ways to approach communities in the midst of Covid-19. We can pause and reflect on COVID-19 responses directed at the communities and maybe even find ways to honor the pushback from these communities so that positive change can occur more naturally.
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.
