PSYCHOSOCIAL TOOLS

Knowledge sharing is the most natural way for organizations and institutions to manage the wealth of information out there. It functions through informal groups or networks of professionals who communicate on common problems, interests or theoretical knowledge, thus creating communities of practice within their particular fields of knowledge.

A key role here of this knowledge sharing is to enable learning exchanges. Communities of practice encourage people to bring quality to their work, because the network feeds their passion. Conversely, organizations tend to convey their core competencies by nurturing communities of practice.

The CHP offers here a couple of tools which can help aidworkers ensure quality work: a psychosocial resource library with over a thousand documents, articles, videos, podcasts…

And a set of 12 info-sheets on the various subjects which can create distress for humanitarian workers in emergency contexts. This is proposed in a preventive approach in order to ensure quality work.
