The Asian Disaster Preparedness Center is organising the event that focuses on children in Asia. Psychosocial Response to Disasters will focus on the critical needs of children affected by disasters and teach how communities can prepare to support their most vulnerable members.

The other keynote speakers are Dr. Benjaporn Panyayong, senior psychiatrist at the Dept. of Mental Health Ministry of Public Health in Thailand, and Dr. Satyabrata Dash, project manager at the Bangladesh Head Office Action Aid Australia.

Mr. Dyregrov and Mr. Yule will conduct a training in the Children and War’s manual after the forum on 26 January 2010.
