FREE WACIT Psychoeducation Resources

These resources have been developed on the basis of our training programme, or in relation to its key themes. They apply across systems and cultures, although primarily developed with low- and middle-income countries in mind.

They are suitable for caregivers, volunteers / paraprofessionals and universal practitioners, but could also be odf value to mental health practitioners with limited previous experience in the field of child trauma.

To make our resources as widely accessible as possible, several of our partners have kindly translated in different languages.

Building on our face-to-face practice-focused interprofessional training, which has beend attended by more than 500 participants in the last three years, we have adapted the foundation course on the impact of trauma on child mental health in a e-learn module.

This relates different types of complex trauma to child development, common mental health problems, assessment, formulation of care plan, and an overview of interventino strategies.

The e-learn module can be used by practitioners, voluneteers and caregivers in contact with vulnerable children and youth across different sociocultural contexts and service systems.
