SRT for Trauma Healing and Community Empowerment in Northern Uganda

OPPORTUNITY FOR INTERNSHIP OR COMMUNITY PROJECT IN UGANDA

 

We are looking for a student with a background in Psychology / Sociology / Cultural Anthropology / Development Studies to do research in our project in Northern Uganda: 

Introducing the Subconscious Release Technique for Trauma Healing and Community Empowerment in Northern Uganda

The Project

A small group of psychotherapists in Northern Uganda has been trained in the Subconscious Release Technique, a powerful technique that helps clearing mental and emotional blocks and healing trauma. The need for psychological support and healing is huge in this war-affected region. Impressed by the results and transformation of individual SRT sessions with people, the team decided to implement the technique at community level. We have set up a pilot project in which two villages have been selected, where the team will go once a week to do SRT sessions with the people from that community.

Your Activities

You will have the opportunity to learn more about trauma healing with the SRT technique and do research on the impact of trauma healing with SRT on community empowerment.
