In response to the recent crisis, Amna is offering training sessions for organisations, frontline practitioners and volunteers who are working to support affected communities.
The experience of living in a conflict area, being forced to flee, losing your home, and possibly being separated from your loved ones is deeply painful and scarring. Those who experience conflict and displacement are more likely to suffer lifelong psychological distress, including PTSD, depression and anxiety.
On Thursday, December 12, 2023, Amna has its next 3-hour virtual training.
This training aims to give practitioners and frontline workers an introduction to safe, good practice principles when setting up psychosocial support spaces/services for refugee communities. The training lasts three hours and covers:
- Core principles for setting up a safe healing space
- Four core guiding values and how to practice them (respect, connecting, understanding, curiosity)
- An introduction to trauma-sensitive practice to help you understand how to recognise and respond to trauma safely
- An introduction to identity-informed practice – to ensure that refugee communities are at the centre of your practice
- Tools for practicing self-care
Please bring papers and pens or pencils – something you can draw with – to the training. After completing the training, we will share a feedback form and the training slides.
If you have any questions or cannot attend this training but would like to be notified about the next event, please contact Amna Project Assistant: [email protected]. virtual
