Afro-Asia emotional cpr 2022

The SEL Lab, a social enterprise that is focussed on making Social-Emotional Learning available as a growth and change tool,  and Mindful African initiative is organizing the second Afro-South Asia Emotional CPR (eCPR) training.

eCPR is an educational program designed to teach people to assist others through an emotional crisis. eCPR is based on the principles found to be shared by a number of support approaches: trauma-informed care, counselling after disasters, peer support to avoid emotional despair, emotional intelligence, suicide prevention, and cultural attunement.

Through eCPR we learn that people in emotional crisis or distress express their feelings as a form of communication to be understood and our approach assumes that people are doing their best to cope up with an experience beyond their current ability to effectively manage. The sooner we begin to support a [person in emotional crisis or distress, the more likely it is that the person will make a full and speedy return to a life of community. Learn More
