Health and social service practitioners workshop

This workshop has been designed to help deliver professional development training activities to Health and Social Service Practitioners (HSSPs) that will develop their knowledge and skills in:

  • Preparing families with children both practically and psychologically for a potential natural disaster
  • Guiding families with children in supporting and protecting children during a natural disaster event; and
  • Supporting families and identifying emotional and behavioural difficulties in children following a natural disaster event.

The core outcome of the training is for HSSPs to be equipped with the knowledge and skills required to promote resilience and coping and decrease long-term adverse reactions in children (aged 0-12 years) following a natural disaster event.

This workshop and accompanying activities has been broken into four modules which can be delivered as one full-day workshop, two half-day or a series of four sessions. Modules are anticipated to run for 45-60 minutes.

This workshop training package is comprises of a Facilitator’s Handbook and accompanying presentation slides, discussion/reflection activities, participant handouts and an ‘additional resources’ guide.  As the facilitator, it’s best to start by familiarising yourself with the workshop by viewing the Facilitator’s Handbook.
