We believe that psychosocial support is critical in the face of COVID 19. It builds our resilience to face this threat and gives us determination to overcome. Last week Dr Tedros said in his press briefing – Hope is a powerful medicine. REPSSI and APSSI’s contribution to the global effort is to develop a series of presentations that we are going to put out twice a week. The first is titled – Fright, Flight or Flocking. Flocking is a theory of community resilience which is an important aspect of psychosocial support.
The 10 minute presentation was available on facebook at 11 am South African time on Wednesday 1 April 2020. If you missed it, you are welcome to view the video via youtube at https://youtu.be/e39sucyrZao. You are all invited to participate and to share this presentation with all of your partners.
