Skills for Psychological Recovery (SPR) is designed to help survivors gain skills to reduce ongoing distress and effectively cope with post-disaster stresses and adversities. SPR is based on an understanding that disaster survivors will experience a broad range of reactions (physical, psychological, behavioural, spiritual) over differing periods of time. While many survivors will recover on their own, some will experience distressing reactions that interfere with adaptive coping. Compassionate, caring, and informed providers may help these survivors recover by introducing them to the applicable SPR skills.
The Association of International Schools in Africa is dedicated to serving its members throughout Africa during this challenging time. Please let us know if you require additional or specific information, resources and or support, and we will endeavour to assist you as soon as possible.
