This Hub will be focusing on sharing resources, exchanging information and best practices, and citing guidelines for provision of services during the war, in a similar way to how resources were shared in a Hub for COVID-19.
The Hub gives a single point of access to resources for psychologists to use for example in accessing training, appropriate and current evidence-based models to use, how to get involved, and how people can manage stress and the information they receive and share.
1. Training: Ways to access to training in psychosocial support including psychological first aid and first response, and freely available training materials.
2. Psychological models: Current and evidence-based models related to first response and other stages of crisis and trauma.
3. Psychological tools for psychologists’ use: Tools such as measures for psychologists to use.
4. Supporting people to manage the psychological impact of war: Ways of managing stress related to the war and how to support and talk to others including children.
5. Supporting refugees: How best to support refugees, including delivering psychological support, and where necessary use of language interpretation.
6. Dissemination of accurate information: Providing the psychological understanding of how to assess and manage information and how to share appropriately.
7. Getting involved: Routes through which individual psychologists and psychology associations can help, engaging with the established routes so efforts are directed both where they are needed and appropriatelyCategories of resources will be added as need is identified and they become available.
