Psychological and spiritual support is expanding through ever proliferating online AVP workshops. Participants include Hurricane survivors, women and adolescents living in situations of domestic violence, and others suffering from the stress of confinement, unemployment, and militarization of civil society.
With new workshops in January, national coordinators and colleagues have been involved in facilitating 10 Basic online workshops and 3 Advanced, with 170 Spanish-speaking participants from 15 countries: El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Ecuador, Colombia, Brasil, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Nicaragua, Panama, Cuba, USA, Spain and Germany. Participants who are AVP facilitators plan to replicate the workshops with others, including a new team of AVP virtual facilitators in Cali, Colombia. The enthusiasm is contagious with demand soaring. – Monica Maher, PLA Initiative Coordinator
