Self-Care Training

ITIM provided  our evidence-based training materials to facilitate training of over 40 teachers in Dohuk, Kurdistan, Iraq. The teachers learned the knowledge and skills to apply self-care in their life. Our hope is that they will be able to maintain their physical, emotional, and social health so as to be able to continue to support their students despite continued stress.   

You can think about self-care like this: when the battery in our mobile phone dies, we have to recharge it. When the petrol runs out in the car, we need to refill it. We try to charge the battery or fill the petrol before it runs out completely. We should do the same thing for our mind and body. Self-care are the things we do that gives us charge, gives us fuel.

Our expert international trainers trained over 150 lawyers from the Iraqi Bar Association in the principles of trauma-informed interviewing. Trauma-informed interviewing are evidence-based practices which recognise the effects of psychological trauma and equips lawyers  (and other professions) with the skills to help people provide more consistent and comprehensive information.


For a limited time, we are excited to share our evidence-based training materials on self-care and trauma-informed interviewing.
