Free webinar: Psychological First Aid and Basic Attending and Facilitating Skills for Librarians

The National Library of the Philippines, through the Public Libraries Division, will be conducting a free Webinar-Workshop on Psychological First Aid and Basic Attending and Facilitating Skills for Librarians on February 2, 2022 (Wednesday) from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM.

From the NLP Facebook page:

“Even before the pandemic, mental health issues are a pressing concern in Filipino society. It became worse at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Filipinos who lost their jobs and OFWs who were repatriated experienced financial stress. Medical and other frontline workers were confronting health-related anxiety. In the same way, teachers and students expressed a more serious level of emotional and psychological concerns as the educational landscape suddenly shifted to online and modular modalities. Many families were distressed due to the loss of loved ones, financial stress, and COVID-19 anxiety. 

These issues resulted in more serious mental health concerns especially for various stakeholders in the educational system – students, teachers, parents, and other school staff. Librarians, being in the frontline service of providing up-to-date information regarding the ongoing pandemic and its repercussions, may take their responsibility to help these various stakeholders to curb the ill effects of the situation. Appropriate awareness and skills will be given to them to become more effective in delivering these duties and responsibilities.”

Resource speakers include Prof. Gino A. Cabrera of Southern Luzon State University and Prof. Noreen P. Echague of Southern Luzon State University. Sheena L. Samson from the Public Libraries Division of NLP will serve as moderator.

The webinar will be conducted via Zoom.  This event has CPD points.
