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.
