Research Project: R&DOverview
Projects Completed/Newely Launched
A project is being run in joint partnership between National Institute of Psychology, Quaid-i- Azam University and UNDP
under the title "Provision of Psycho-social counseling to monsoon flood affectees in selected districts of Pakistan". The
ideology is to create psychological experts that are ready to go into field for interventions with flood affectees. The finer idea is
to develop a referral system that can be activated under the banner of UNDP whenever the nation is afflicted with disaster. For
this NIP has been entrusted with the task of creating psychosocial experts in all the provinces of the country. It is the intention
of the project to train graduates of psychology from various psychology departments of public sector universities of all
provinces to serve as the psychosocial expert. 39 participants belonging to the University of Baluchistan, Quetta; University of
Sindh Jamshoro, Islamia University, Bahawalpur, University of Peshawar and fromAzad Jammu & Kashmi were given a five day
extensive training.
During the first phase of this project, NIP has conducted a need assessment study in the selected districts to record
information on psycho-social issues of the communities including, children, adolescents, women, elderly and disabled. The
report will be published soon. Later TOT workshop was carried out as the second phase to build the capacity of internees.
Following this, the participants will intern in selected Emergency Response NGOs for a period of 2 months. During the
internship, the internees will build capacity building of at least 20 NGOs, hold psychoeducation session, collect quantitative
data, case studies and will develop referral system for serious cases. It is hoped the participants have a good learning
