“Strengthening Capacity of the Ministry of Interior to Provide Psychological Support in Emergency Situations” Project
The Ukrainian government requested PCU’s assistance in developing a number of projects focused on enhancing national bodies’ capacity to provide psychological rehabilitation for conflict affected people.
The Ministry of Interior (MoI) is one of the institutions responsible for the provision of psychological support during and after emergency situations. Its tasks include professional and psychological training for specific operation in extreme condition, and minimization of negative psychological consequences of staying in conflict zone (prevention of post-traumatic stress disorders and suicidal ideation, socio-professional readaptation after return from the conflict zone, etc.).
During 2020, the PCU started the development of a comprehensive curriculum for in-service training on psychological support during emergency situations. The curriculum includes two courses covering stabilization and rehabilitation phases of psychological assistance. In 2020, the PCU developed the first course (stabilization phase) and piloted it with practitioners representing psychological support services of various MoI-affiliated agencies.
The PCU will recruit two national experts to develop second part of the comprehensive curriculum on psychological support (rehabilitation phase) and pilot it during a series of trainings for MoI psychologists. After the piloting, the experts will compile two courses – on stabilization and rehabilitation phase – and provide MoI educational institutions with comprehensive curriculum for in-service training on psychological support during emergency situations. Also, the experts will conduct ToTs for MoI educational institutions’ professors to teach the comprehensive course.
