Heartbeat of Humanity: Supporting Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies in the Balkans

“It was such a pleasure to be able to train in-person again rather than online. The volunteers respond better to conceptual things like active listening or sensitive communication that we’re trying to teach.”

Sarah Harrison

In this episode of Heartbeat of Humanity, Communications Officer Jesper Guhle interviews Sarah about her journey to North Macedonia to conduct a training on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergencies for 5 National Societies from the Balkan Region. The training was co-facilitated with IFRC’s MHPSS Delegate for the EURO Region, Antonia de Barros Mota.JTNDZGl2JTIwaWQlM0QlMjJidXp6c3Byb3V0LXBsYXllci04ODMxMDA5JTIyJTNFJTNDJTJGZGl2JTNFJTBBJTNDc2NyaXB0JTIwc3JjJTNEJTIyaHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZ3d3cuYnV6enNwcm91dC5jb20lMkYxNDc1MTgyJTJGODgzMTAwOS1zdXBwb3J0aW5nLXJlZC1jcm9zcy1yZWQtY3Jlc2NlbnQtbmF0aW9uYWwtc29jaWV0aWVzLWluLXRoZS1iYWxrYW5zLmpzJTNGY29udGFpbmVyX2lkJTNEYnV6enNwcm91dC1wbGF5ZXItODgzMTAwOSUyNnBsYXllciUzRHNtYWxsJTIyJTIwdHlwZSUzRCUyMnRleHQlMkZqYXZhc2NyaXB0JTIyJTIwY2hhcnNldCUzRCUyMnV0Zi04JTIyJTNFJTNDJTJGc2NyaXB0JTNFIn the podcast episode, Sarah introduces a breathing exercise she used as an energizer in the training.
