PSYCHOSOSIAL ASSISTANCE FOR CHILDREN OF EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI DISASTER VICTIMS IN PALU

“Yuni is one of the children who looks the most cheerful compared to the other. But after the second day we did counseling, yuni turned out has a trauma that is heavier than the others so that when there is a slight shock she is more sensitive,” said Maya (24), Psychosocial Team of Rumah Zakat.

In the world of psychology, the trauma experienced by Yuni is still relatively reasonable because it is still in vulnerability less than a month after the earthquake and tsunami in Palu. But psychosocial remains an important thing to do where it serves to straighten the thought if there is a misunderstanding in interpreting the social conditions due to the disaster that occurred.

For children who have cognitive immature, this is very important because if a trauma is sustained it will lead to a phobia that can last a lifetime. It is certainly very influential for their lives in the future. Given this, Rumah Zakat sends a psychosocial team to Mts nurul hasanah, kel. Pengawu, kec. Tatanga to help children in Palu.

“Hopefully this psychosocial activity can help children back to the original conditions, “Maya added.
