Formation en Premiers Secours Psychologiques: Manuel à l’intention des professionnels travaillant avec des enfants
The training is aimed at child protection and other child worker staff such as educators and healthcare workers, and volunteers, who support children in the aftermath of or during a crisis or traumatic event, as well as staff from other sectors that interact with children, such as WASH, shelter, or nutrition. The communication and comforting skills that are taught and practiced in the training are used to help reduce the initial distress children may experience, as well as connect them with practical assistance and encourage positive coping strategies. PFA is now included in the Minimum Standards for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action.
The training requires 3 days, 2 days dedicated to PFA for Children, and 1 day for stress management for staff.
