Life Skills

Objective: This training provides knowledge on methods for setting up psychosocial life skills programmes or including life skills components in psychosocial programmes.

Life skills are psychosocial competencies and abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable us to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life. Life skills are vital to psychosocial recovery after a crisis event and are closely linked to the concepts of behavioural change, psychosocial well-being and resilience. Strengthening psychosocial life skills can help people regain abilities and build new competencies, even in very challenging circumstances. This promotes resilience, making it easier to adapt to changed living conditions.

Target group: Staff and Volunteers setting up life skills programmes

Length: 1-2 days
