A Psychosocial Support Toolkit for Social Workers

This toolkit is based on a review of the most recent research evidence around the psychosocial needs of forcibly displaced children and youth and discussions with social workers. It encourages a group approach to psychosocial support because the reality is that there are few psychosocial professionals available for displaced communities which makes individual counselling difficult. The toolkit is written to be read directly by social workers either alone or in groups. It can also form part of a training and we have given suggestions for trainers throughout the text. It provides a background to work with displaced families, outlines how to set up a psychosocial support group and then suggests exemplar and tested resources that can be used within the groups.
