INTERNATIONAL PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL PROJECTS

IPP aims to promote and improve resilience by providing various courses in Israel and abroad in these fields:
Trauma treatment ........International Psycho-Educational Projects Israel, together with International Human Rights Commission, are implementing a joint project with Israeli organization “BAR’EL”, engaged in search and rescue of missing persons.
The importance of a “psychological component “in the work of a rescue team is unquestionable, they must deal with a family tragedy – a situation in which neither a location nor physical condition of a lost family member are known. Usually, family members of the lost person are placing high hopes upon the first person entering their home with the aim of helping them to find their loved ones. BAR’EL’s representatives are first to deal with pain, disorientation and helplessness felt by the family members of the lost person. Their task is not only to get the maximum of information upon which they build their search plan; they must also give the first psychological aid to the family. Communication with persons undergoing traumatic experience requires professional training.
International Psycho-Educational Projects Israel organizes training seminars for BAR’EL’s rescue teams, teaching basics of first psychological aid, techniques of efficient information collection and communication with families undergoing traumatic experiences.
