Summary

This course offers online training for people working in humanitarian organisations, wherever they are in the world. It is aimed at people who are currently, or hope to be, engaged in humanitarian work in any country and who want the skills and knowledge to offer psychosocial support. This involves helping people to maintain their positive psychological development in the face of challenges – often traumatic – being posed by their social environment. Once you have completed this course you will be able to support others within your organisation, whether or not you are part of an established human resources department. As well as ‘helping the helpers’, you will be equipped to offer direct psychosocial guidance to people who have suffered, or who continue to suffer, from the effects of a natural or man-made catastrophe such as famine, flood, epidemic or war.
