Childcare vounteer

From a blog reader:

Val Turner (val.turner@wealden.gov.uk says
Hi, I would like to come out and help. I am very concerned about the number of small children that have been left orphaned and wonder if there is something I can do in any small way with a lot of love in my heart? I have run a playgroup and well used to looking after/entertaining little ones. Though of course, I am willing to do anything to help where it is needed. I look forward to hearing from you. Val

There's something my intuition tells me we can all do with nothing more than "a lot of love" in our hearts...in addition to donations or volunteering if you are able, or as a simple contribution you can make if you don't have the time/money you'd like to give...try sending LOVE / see what happens...

POST TRAUMATIC STRESS COUNSELLING:
A TRAINING PROGRAMME FOR VOLUNTEERS

The recent catastrophe in the east has taken away many lives. There has
been
tremendous loss to lives, families and property. The total death toll
is
estimated to be more than one and a half lakhs, and in India alone,
more
than fourteen thousand have lost their lives. Three lakh people have
lost
their families and property. The nation has responded with timely
assistance. Money, food and necessities are being donated. Numerous
rescue
efforts are being made. Disaster Management teams are doing their best
to
manage the resources that are being delivered to them.

With all these, it is also important to understand that these survivors
have
undergone great psychological trauma. While there is no dearth of help
and
support in terms of physical commodities, there is a felt need for
counselling the survivors of this disaster. There is a need to train
volunteers to provide effective counselling to them. Therefore, the
Center
for Psychological Counselling, Department of Psychology, Bangalore
University, India, is willing to collaborate with Swami Vivekananda
Yoga
Kendra to offer a three-day Training Programme for training volunteers
to
offer counselling services to tsunami-affected survivors, in the area
of
Disaster Management and Trauma Counselling, as well as monitor the
process
on a continuous basis.

The programme will lay special emphasis on counselling children and
reorienting them towards academic interests, to equip them to face the
forthcoming exams. The programme will also cater to training in skills
required to identify specific counselling and guidance needs for
rehabilitation and for framing specific, need-based interventions.

OBJECTIVES: The training programme will cover these topics:

v Understanding basic counselling skills and their importance in a
Counselling setting.
v To train volunteers in formulating self-help groups for families and
students.
v Developing skills and strategies for trauma counselling and
management
v Helping counsellors develop a Positive outlook towards future
v Training in skills for developing co-counselling, social support and
crisis management skills
v To train volunteers to develop skills and knowledge to assess the
impact
of the disaster and service evaluation, through qualitative methods for
use
in future management processes.

ELIGIBILITY: Volunteers deputed by Vivekananda Yoga Kendra and Center
for
Psychological Counselling, Bangalore University.

DATE: January 18 - 20, 2005 TIMINGS: 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
