Broken Links – psychosoical support for people separated from family members

Circumstances surrounding conflict, crisis or disaster can cause families to become separated from their loved ones. Experience has shown that beneficiaries who approach the Red
Cross Red Crescent looking for family members are often in need of psychosocial support. This training is designed to support staff and volunteers in a wide range of settings where they may be in contact with families who have been separated from their loved ones. During the training participants will be introduced to the causes and consequences of being separated from family members and how separation may impact psychosocial well-being. Additionally, the training provides participants with an understanding of how to support people who have been separated and at the same time take care of themselves.

Target group: Red Cross Red Crescent staff working with people who have been separated.
Length: 1 day
