As part of Project ‘Acute Crisis Joint
Response in the Gaza Strip’, which is being implemented by War Child Holland in
cooperation with Gaza Community Mental Health Programme, staff members from
Culture and Free Thought Society have had their first supervision sessions on
Tuesday, September 7, 2021.
The project targets those who
work in psychosocial support to beneficiaries within the project.
The sessions are provided by Dr
Sami Oweida, a GCMHP senior specialist, for 11 professionals, with the aim of
creating a supportive and organized environment for them so as they can reflect
on the content and process of the work they do. In addition they aim at
relieving the stress they face in their professional and personal lives.
The participants displayed good
interaction during these sessions and had discussions on different issues they
face at work and in their daily lives, expressing their satisfaction with these
sessions which they said had alleviated the stress they experienced during
dealing with crisis situations.
The 6-month project is funded by the Dutch Relief Alliance (DRA) and is
implemented by War Child Holland in partnership with GCMHP.
