More trained counsellors in occupied Palestine

15 October, 2012

More school counsellors have been trained in Teaching Recovery Techniques in Palestine. 

Our trainer Unni Heltne trained 20 participants from East Jerusalem and surrounding areas in Ramallah last week.

“The participants were highly motivated and enganged,” Heltne says.

The training was held in collaboration with CARE Palestine and the Ministry for Education, and is part of the second phase of a trauma recovery project in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Taking into account the counsellors who were previously trained in Nablus, there is now a total of 44 trained school counsellors in the north, south east and west  of the occupied Palestinian territories.

over 800 children aged 11-14 years is anticipated to be screened for PTSD and at least 240 children during the second phase of the trauma project.
