Mental and Sociopsychological Needs and the Elderly
This collection includes materials related to elderly people's mental and sociopsychological needs in humanitarian contexts. Often overshadowed in mainstream literature, these materials address the sociopsychological needs of seniors, especially in times of crises, disasters, and in areas lacking coherent policies for those affected. These resources are published by CMHS, Cogent Social Science, HelpAge, Age Action, FAO, the International Federation on Aging, Global Alzheimer’s & Dementia Action Alliance, Alzheimer’s Disease International, and Alzheimer’s Pakistan. This Collection completes the series of available collections for elderly in the Humanitarian Library and is part of a broader Channel on this topic entitled Elderly in Humanitarian Emergencies.
Psychosocial Support for Children in Emergencies
This collection on psychosocial support for children in emergencies, considers the horrific situations children go through every day. These situations range from exposure to violence or disaster (natural and man-made), to loss of or separation from family members and friends, militarization and community conflict, deteriorating living conditions, loss of livelihoods, and lack of access to services. These situations have immediate and long term consequences, and as such, there is need for psychosocial support intervention for their psychological well-being and development. This collection is centered on addressing the psychological needs of children in emergency settings and contains resources from such organizations as ICRC, UNICEF, USAID, and others.
