Psycho-social counselling workshop for social workers

In line with the ongoing rehabilitation project on children associated with armed forces or groups (CAAFAG) being implemented by PSA in partnership with UNICEF, on 03-08 September 2019 we conducted psycho-social counselling workshop for social workers.

The training was part of the capacity building on caseworkers in order to improve and advance their skills on Psychosocial counseling services, the components of the training were; screening, psychosocial assessment, planning, counseling intervention, and follow-ups.

A total of 10 case workers participated in the training that was held in Garowe rehabilitation Centre.

Under CAAFAG project, psychosocial counseling is a very imperative aspect of the project, it helps the children to heal the psychological wounds, improve their well-being, alleviate distress, and enhance coping skills including helping them to be active survivors rather than passive victims.
