Community-based psychological support:
A training manual
International Federation
Geneva, 2003

Critical events, such as disasters, conflicts, wars, accidents and health epidemics bring with them social and psychological consequences that often undermine people's ability to carry on with their lives. Traditional approaches to disaster and emergency assistance have often neglected the psychological impact of crises on affected populations.

This training manual builds on the experience of psychological support programmes implemented by National Societies following major natural and man-made disasters over the past decade. It also covers the latest developments in the field as well as recommended methodologies. In general, the manual contains information on the skills and techniques required to provide the kind of support which helps people function under the extraordinary level of stress found in most disaster or critical event situations.

Available in English and Spanish.
