Community-based psychological support – Module 1: Psychological support

International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (2001)

This module introduces psychological support, shows why it is needed and explains the role of volunteers in helping to relieve emotional suffering by mobilizing the power of humanity and helping people to rely once more on their own resources to rebuild shattered lives.

While the module focuses on the provision of psychological support in larger-scale critical events, the approach is also applicable and adaptable to many other Red Cross – Red Crescent settings.
