Learn how UPA is helping Palestinian Parents assess trauma in their children in Gaza. Mingle with staff while learning about this program and others.

How we are helping parents:
UPA’s Healing Through Feeling program is building a cushion of support around Gaza’s children by hiring local mental health practitioners (MHPs) and providing them with cutting-edge training and professional development. In turn, these practitioners forge partnerships with non-governmental kindergartens and summer camps in Gaza. They then lead psycho-education sessions for parents and teachers to increase awareness of trauma and its symptoms as well as to provide tools caregivers can use to alleviate trauma in their children.
