BRIEF EXPRESSIVE THERAPY FOR TSUNAMI AFFECTED CHILDREN:
A TRAINING PROGRAMME FOR VOLUNTEERS


Tsunami, termed as one of the worst natural disasters in the recent past, has caused tremendous loss to lives, families and property. The timely help from different quarters of the world have helped us respond to their basic needs of food, clothing and shelter, along with other necessities.

Now, when the immediate rescue and relief operations have almost winded up and the recovery phase of trauma experience has set in, the psychological needs have to be addressed. Of the trauma-affected survivors, children are the most vulnerable. Their lack of experience and maturity makes them less capable of comprehending what has happened. However, the reactions of adults around them, the kind of loss they have experienced and the amount of exposure to trauma determine the effect the event will have on the child. There is a need to train volunteers to help children deal with the posttraumatic phase. Therefore, the Center for Psychological Counselling, Department of Psychology, Bangalore University, India, is offering a six-day training cum on-the-field-experience services to tsunami-affected children survivors.
