Children’s Accelerated Trauma Therapy

CRESS supports 8 counsellors from within the South Sudanese refugee communities, who are trained with the Children’s Accelerated Trauma Therapy (CATT) protocol. These skills are now being embedded within their communities to provide therapy to their children and young people, for whom there is no mental health provision in Uganda. The Diocese of Liwolo worked in conjunction with the CATT License holder, Action for Child Trauma International (ACTI), to deliver this training.

The team also deliver community awareness Emotional Health Programme on PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and CATT with very good attendance
