Gaza Counselors Leave Jordan with New Tools to Manage Stress (Watch Video)
24th November 2010

Six counselors who work with patients at the Culture and Free Thought Association and the Red Crescent Society for the Gaza Strip recently visited Jordan to participate in a 5-day study tour at the Noor Al Hussein Foundation's Institute for Family Health.

Dr. Edoardo Pera, a clinical psychologist and international expert on self-care with the Italian NGO Association for Women in Development, AIDOS, instructed the group.

His goal?

To provide technical support to the counselors from Gaza for their work with patients who have experienced traumatic events and to provide the six trainees with new stress management tools, including meditation.

The study-tour also provided the counselors from Gaza with the opportunity to share some of their own experiences with their colleagues from the Institute for Family Health.
