Psychosocial Supervision

Time with a qualified guide as you support the wellbeing of those who have been affected by a crisis or disaster

Description

If you provide mental health or psychosocial support to people or communities in the midst of a crisis or disaster, it is common for their thoughts, feelings and behaviours to be passed on to you. If so, having a psychosocial professional to talk with can help you cope with the distress, reduce the risk of vicarious trauma, and grow.

The role of a Psychosocial Supervisor is to help an individual process their emotions or challenges drawing from their own knowledge and experience in the field. Because they have experience in psychosocial work, they are able to offer guidance and mentorship without interfering with the program or casework.
