Dealing with Distress in the Digital Rights Community: What can you do as a community leader?

This workshop is targeted towards community leaders and community managers who lead and care for members of the digital rights activist community, particularly those from vulnerable and marginalized communities. Participants will be trained on the basics of peer-led psychosocial support and community engagement using the principles of Interpersonal Counseling (IPC), which is an intervention designed by Dr. Helen Verdeli, the Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director, Global Mental Health Lab at Teachers College, Columbia University, and is adapted from Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT).
Participants will also learn how to identify and provide support to community members suffering from mental health distress, recognize when higher levels of support from mental health professionals are needed, and address mental health stigma in the community.

November 16 @ 9:00 - 11:00 am EDT / 13:00 - 15:00 UTC
