Challenge

A sudden tragic event, may become a psychological trauma only after some time of the disaster. Detection of traumatic symptoms (nightmares, flashbacks, etc.) will be considered as post-traumatic stress after 3 months after the event. Children must be protected, it is important to take care of their emotional ties to prevent severe trauma after a disaster like an earthquake.

Solution

Training technicians and staff involved in the children protection process who have been affected by the earthquake. Objectives of the Workshops: - Orientate about how to manage stress after a disaster with children/families. - Identify potential risks for children - Establish special techniques and an action plan for intervention. - Intervention that will focus in 3 main aspects: *The quality care that people receive. * Protection of attachment relationships *Empowering survivors

Long-Term Impact

The project will benefit 30 people from the local staff of the province of Esmeraldas and 200 children and their families from Muisne City that survived the earthquake.
