INTENSIVE CAREGIVING WORKSHOP
The objective of this pilot is to provide intensive mental health cares to a first group of children in need, while adjusting our team methodology and training local professionals to take over on caregiving. The workshop is considered to be carried out in collaboration with the social department of the Angkor Hospital of Children in Siem Reap (to be confirmed). The humanitarian hospital is providing a wide range of free medical care to children from poor families from all over the province https://angkorhospital.org.

Upon recommandation of the hospital psychologists, we will be gathering a group of twenty all-age children in urgent need for psychological support, either from emotional distress or physical harm. Children will receive intensive psychotherapeutic care during a two-week exceptionally residential stay, to fully benefit from the presence of our abroad experts. Follow-up by our upgraded local professionals will be performed on a regular bi-weekly to monthly basis until recovery.
The workshop will gather our full team of experts to meet the specific needs of beneficiary Khmer children, in their own life history, community and culture. We will build dedicated integrated protocols from our respective expertise, as well as educative message for the children’s communities (parents, teachers) to share about loving attitude. We will train by direct practice five to ten local professionals (psychologists, social workers) to empower them with the necessary skills. They will pursue with the follow-up of the pilot group and initiate the progressive roll-out of the caregiving process to further children. Support from abroad will remain fully available. Complete assessment of the demonstration and training pilot is planned after three running months to confirm our long-term care program.
