Strengthening Resilience: A global selection of psychosocial interventions

Strengthening Resilience was developed in answer to the growing demand for guidance on how to implement psychosocial support activities. It is designed to provide the practitioner with a range of possibilities when planning psychosocial support activities. Drawing on case studies and programme descriptions from psychosocial interventions around the world, the book presents fundamental methods of providing psychosocial support, including concrete examples of interventions, ideas for activities, and how to modify them to suit specific contexts and groups. Strengthening Resilience: A global selection of psychosocial interventions provides guidelines for how best to implement psychosocial interventions and illustrates how broad and diverse the field of psychosocial support is. The book has three main sections:

  1. Psychosocial support
  2. Fundamental activities in psychosocial support responses
  3. Psychosocial support activities
