Trainer Unni Heltne (psychologist) have completed several workshops to teach Nepalese professionals to lead groups for children and adolescents in the evidence based manual Children and disasters. Teaching Recovery Techniques. This manual has been used with very good results following previous earthquakes and hopefully this effort will secure good help in reducing trauma among children. Successive group trainings will now be arranged for professionals recruited and coordinated by the NGO Global Action Nepal, whose staff will be participating in the trainings. Dr Kamal Choudhry from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh was Heltne’s co-trainer at the first training in Kathmandu. The Norwegian Foreign Ministry have paid for the trainers, while local partners paid for other costs.
