Supporting orphans and other vulnerable children through communication and basic counselling : a reference guide for service providers


Publication Date 

74 p

"This guide has been written as a reference resource for non-professional counsellors and staff working with orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) who need to know how to provide some basic counselling as part of psychosocial support for the children in their care or through their projects. This guide does not diminish the need for formal training and additional professional support, but aims to provide information and guidance which can be used with other resources. The guide aims to: * strengthen the capacity of service providers to address the individual and collective psychosocial needs of children and young people; * provide an easy to use two-in-one guide and reference material for child counsellors; * promote the personal and professional development of counsellors and other staff working with children and young people, and * help service providers to assess and deal with challenges in working with orphans and other vulnerable children"
