Psychosocial trainings for shelter teams who work with refugees
The staff and volunteers at refugee shelters work daily with populations who have undergone traumatic experiences. Most of the shelter workers have received little training on psychosocial themes such as P.T.S.D. Therefore they must be provided with resources and practical exercises in order to professionalize their work.
IsraAID’s psychosocial training project was initiated to expand the participants’ theoretical and practical knowledge of trauma, resilience, and culturally-adapted psychosocial approaches.
Providing a psychosocial understanding of work in a refugee shelter
Acquiring theoretical knowledge of trauma, psychosocial measures, etc.
