Psychological First Aid Guide (Nepali)

Guide for Psychological First Aid – in Nepali (2010)

Using IFRC, National Center for PTSD, & National Center for Child Traumatic Stress manuals on PFA as references, a 3 day workshop was conducted involving MHPSS practitioners for leading local NGOs in Nepal. The discussions, conclusions and recommendations on how the PFA content could be made appropriate for the Nepali context was recorded by TPO Nepal. This was then given out to all participants for comments and feedback before the guide was finalized.

    Therapeutic Theater session can help the victim and survivors of Nepal earthquake to rebuild confidence level and dill with their emotional difficulties with trauma management.

    I think at this moment for the victim and survivors of Nepal earthquake also need this kind of psychosocial care and support as psychological relief.

    So you and your organization can organize first aid psychosocial care camp or therapeutic assistance program for the victims and survivors of earthquake effected community of Nepal in humanitarian perspective.

    As well as you and your organization can develop psychosocial care giver volunteers to give long trams assistance for effected community.

    You or your organization need to apple to GoB of your country, development agencies & INGO’s who are instantiated to work in Nepal to support to conducting therapeutic theater sessions with victims & survivors of earthquake to protect their psychosocial disabilities.

    UTSA is the pioneer organization in Bangladesh on Therapeutic theater as development approach. Through this process UTSA increased communication skill, interpersonal and personal thoughts, beliefs, conflict of different interest groups, emotional and trauma management.

    We are the first organization in Bangladesh who is initiated activities to reduce cultural conflict of Bihari and Bangladeshi using this approach and successfully running the activities.

    It is mentionable our team successfully responded at natural disaster as well man-made disasters to rebuild the victim and survivors confidence level and dill with their emotional difficulties and trauma management.

    As well we also refer our initiatives natural disaster SIDR & AILA effected people and after men made disaster Mirsorai Tragedy.

    Our recent response to Rana Plaza is a significant part of our work.

    Nepal earthquake victims & survivors needed long trams emergency psychosocial care and support to recovering their emotional difficulties and develop their management capacity of Phobia & Anxiety, PTSD ect.

    If most vulnerable victims & survivors of Nepal earthquake did not get long trams counseling and psychotherapy support they will be transforming to psychosocial disabilities.

    So we hope government of Nepal and respected organizations will consider emergency psychosocial care and support program with this effected community to protect their Psychosocial Disabilities as humanitarian aid.

    But there are no mentionable plan and intervention for psychosocial care and support program with this effected community.

    Take lead to do something to organize and continue psychosocial care and support program for Nepal earthquake victims & survivors ASAP..

    Sincerely yours,
