Fundated: Cooperation on Psychosocial Treatment in Central America

Improving Psychosocial Treatment at Community Level in Central America

Through the exchange of 20 staff members over a three-year period, the two partners Fundacion Asistencia Tecnica para el Desarrollo (FUNDATED; Guatemala) and Centro de Derechos Humanos Ciudadanos y Autonomicos (CEDEHCA; Nicaragua) have joined forces to improve the psychosocial treatment available for two vulnerable groups.

 

For a variety of reasons, the psychosocial needs of children with learning disabilities as well as victims of violence have not been given sufficient attention, either in the health nor in the school system in Central America. The situation is particularly dire at community level.

 

Psychologists and psychology teachers and students have been invited to contribute to the project. In Guatemala, children with learning disabilities benefit from the improved psychosocial methods. In Nicaragua, female victims of violence are the main beneficiaries. An integrated feature of the project is an initiative to mobilize children and youthincommunitiesandathometoidentifyand attend to young people with learning disabilities as well as victims of violence at an early stage.
