Psychosocial support (PSS) for all students & staff
Across all MAPs programs, students and staff are supported through PSS. Our teachers at the Al Amal Teaching Centers participate in a range of PSS training, including a 3-month cooperation with the Ministry of Education in Lebanon and a one-day workshop for English teachers in collaboration with ANERA. In addition, Dr. Solfrid Raknes, our clinical psychologist, conducts two training sessions each year to prepare teachers for the Helping Hands Program. This includes training on how to monitor and teach emotional literacy to refugee children, as well as how to use tablets as an educational tool in the classroom.
