Psychosocial Interventions for Displaced Populations

This interactive online course, aims to strengthen capacity for psychosocial response in humanitarian contexts.

About the course

This online course reviews recent developments in the field of psychosocial programming in humanitarian contexts and examines the evidence-base for effective, quality programming. It is suitable for professional development, both for those wishing to explore this rapidly developing area of humanitarian response and for those with significant experience in the field who wish to consolidate their understanding of effective practice.
