Whenever there is a breakdown or dramatic change in a community or country, young men are subject to increased vulnerabilities. Disaster or conflict, for example, or direct participation in or exposure to violence, poverty, unemployment or migration may be challenging for the young men caught up in such events. They may lead to negative behaviour and perceptions, depression and even addiction or trauma, making positive life choices more difficult, at a critical time of transition between childhood and adulthood. This training enhances the participants understanding of providing psychosocial support through a peer-to-peer approach and provides guidance on planning and implementing psychosocial activities for young men. Participants will be introduced to the following themes; psychosocial support; coping and assisting; youth as active members of the community
Young men who are to implement activities for other young men in their community.
