Training sessions in Cameroon
The trainings were done over 3 consecutive days. The first day (day of the conference) was dedicated to practitioners; psychologists and psychiatrists that already were practicing psychology in their respective institutions or practices. The headcount of this session was 10 people. Considering the highly skilled population that this represents, we were very happy with the turn out. Training students was of course our primary focus. We, through these training sessions, aimed to empower the student body to come to help to displaced populations in Cameroon. Not only is this an important learning experience, but they will also integrate society after their studies as active psychologists; that hopefully will use our method to treat their patients. The male-female ration was approximately 1/3; with one of the sessions being almost exclusively female. Overall, we trained over 40 people; a great basis for this pilot that will hopefully bear fruit soon.
