SOUTH SUDAN TRAUMA-HEALING INITIATIVE (SSTHI)
Training and mentoring over 300 community leaders and government officials throughout South Sudan
Implemented by Global Trauma Project
Funded by United Nations Development Programme
Certified by South Sudan Ministry of Education
The SSTHI starts with 3 weeks of intensive training on:
Introduction to Trauma/Compounded Stress
Trauma-Informed Community Empowerment (TICE) Framework
Each training group is guided by a Lead Trainer and an Assistant Trainer. Adult education principles are incorporated to create a safe atmosphere, build upon the experiences, and keep participants engaged.
TICE Community Facilitators divide into teams to spread their knowledge within the community. Each team focuses on 2 audiences, delivering weekly sessions about Trauma/Compounded Stress, and is mentored by GTP staff.
Monitoring and Evaluation
Through a partnership with New School for Social Research, GTP is able to effectively monitor and evaluate impact. Measures include written assessments, qualitative interviews, and physiological tools.
