Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) is providing access to counseling services for Sri Lankans recovering after the tsunami. Many survivors lost family members and remain traumatized by the disaster.
ERD is working with the Diocese of Colombo to coordinate a trauma stress relief and rehabilitation program for people in need of counseling. David Baughn MD and Jennifer Baughn PhD, a physician and clinical psychologist trained in the field of trauma, will be stationed in Sri Lanka for three months. There, they will train local counselors, educators, and social service workers on post traumatic stress disorder methods and interventions.
"Many people in communities throughout the diocese are in need of counseling," said the Rt Revd Duleep de Chickera, the Bishop of Colombo. "'The sea that sustained us took everything from us,'" quoted Bishop Chickera. "This comment from a fisherman applies to people too. Both have the potential for nourishment and destruction."
