Day 4 of the 10-day Parallel Lives programme will look at the impact on children of conflicts across the globe today.
You can listen to my interview with Prof. Panos Vostanis, World Awareness for Children in Trauma www.wacit.org
The aim of this 10-day programme is to have conversations with issue experts looking at social issues and the impact on people. The majority of people I talk to only ‘understand’ today’s global conflicts and the impact, in terms of facts – dates, victims, winners & losers, We need to amplify the existing good practice to ensure people are both aware and understand the situation. Also what action they can take, no matter how small, to support the work of those working on the frontline.

‘How was WACIT born? This evolved through discussions and longstanding with friends, colleagues, volunteers, and ex-victims who share the belief that ‘there is always hope’, even in the most adverse circumstances of individual and collective trauma. We wanted to bring at the forefront and join up good and innovative practice, as well as the emerging evidence, in a comprehensive model, and research and training materials that can be used by groups and individuals in the most remote areas of the world.’
