In partnership with the
Ramallah-based Filastiniyat Organization, which is specialized in providing a
variety of services for journalists in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, Gaza
Community Mental Health Programme has started a series of training sessions on
self-care and stress management, targeting 160 female and male journalists.
The training has a set of
goals, among the highlights of which is equipping the participants with
knowledge and information on self-awareness, and the different physical and
emotional responses to stress which they experience as a result of the stressful
environment of their work.
The 160 media people have
been divided into 10 groups, each one of which is to receive two training days.
The training has provided
the participants with a safe environment, where they could externalize their
feelings and share their experiences with each other, giving them a unique opportunity
to learn new skills in dealing with stressful situations.
The programme will be
concluded by the end of October, 2021.
