Training of Secondary Teachers in Displacement-affected Communities in the IGAD Region MODULE: PSYCHOSOCIAL SUPPORT (PSS)

Welcome to the Psychosocial Support Module. Psychosocial wellbeing is a necessary condition for any human being to realize their full potential and to lead fulfilling, healthy, and productive lives. People that have positive and healthy psychosocial wellbeing are more likely to be confident, have self-esteem, feel safe, and are able to solve problems, make decisions, build positive social relationships, work together, and resolve conflicts.

All students have psychosocial needs. These needs can vary depending on a student’s age, their life experiences, their family situation, their gender, their abilities, and their individual personalities. The school and classroom environment, as well as the relationships between students and the teacher and student, can contribute to supporting students’ psychosocial wellbeing. This 2-day psychosocial support (PSS) module aims to prepare refugee secondary school teachers in the IGAD region to support both the psychosocial wellbeing of their students, as well as themselves.
