This week we will explore psychosocial wellness and the ways social and physical isolation affect communities in the midst of Covid-19. As we engage communities in a collaborative process to flatten the curve and help people cope, we need to pay attention to a broader definition of well-being.

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.
