International Humanitarian Psychosocial Intervension

The programme promotes awareness of psychosocial aspects within any field of humanitarian work, whether in the UK or overseas. It aims to raise awareness of the different contexts that affect psychosocial well-being and access to appropriate services. It also aims to introduce students to different types of consultation, in recognition that most of the services provided through humanitarian agencies are delivered in response to crises or emergencies, are time limited and rely on the engagement of local populations. Consultation skills include those of engagement, development of trust, facilitation, enabling and the identification of a process by which information can be accessed, shared and evaluated.
