Psychosocial Support for Education in Emergencies – Training and Resource Package for Teachers and Counsellors
In many UNRWA Fields of operation children are exposed to violence, conflict, loss and displacement. In these exceptionally difficult circumstances education is of great importance as it brings children a sense of normalcy, hope for the future and an opportunity for developmentally appropriate activities. It is crucial that educators understand this, and that schools provide a child-friendly environment that fosters psychosocial well-being, resilience and coping. The aim of this training and resource package is to equip teachers and counsellors with basic skills for supporting the psychosocial well-being of children affected by conflict and emergencies.
