Work Package 1: Psycho-social Resilient Recovery (lead by PI Joffe and Co-Is Oktari and Direzkia)
Our vision is to foster the resilient recovery of the displaced communities of Palu, Indonesia, by using schools as hubs to improve life. This work package is concerned with fostering the psychosocial resilient recovery of children and their caregivers. To meet these aims, we will conduct an assessment phase through qualitative free association interviews and quantitative surveys to gauge pupil, caregiver and teacher priorities in three marginalised communities. A multipronged, workshop-style intervention for fostering resilience through schools will then be co-developed with local stakeholders to address survivors' psychosocial needs, empower the communities through disaster preparedness programs, and disseminate a culture of safer and resilient communities through agency-building. Interventions will also be shaped by the insights garnered through Work Package 2: WASH Resilient Recovery and Work Package 3: Infrastructural Resilient Recovery and existing evidence.
