The emotional impact of working with children in adversity: Farina

Farina is a Research masters student at Pmb. The focus of her project on the amount of challenges faced by Child and youth facilitators (CYF) who live in circumstances of extreme adversity. Some of these challenges require special personal qualities and training befitting the nature of their work. Yet in the face of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, many CYF do not receive the care and support that they require to work with the traumatic consequences of the pandemic. The success and impact of psychological interventions with children hinges upon the abilities, motivations and dedication of child and youth facilitators

Thank you. I think this is an interesting study- something I haven't previously thought about. What kind of support do these workers get? especially concerning the type of traumatic experiences of the kids that they are dealing with?- Wendy Penfold
