Davao City teams to hold stress debriefing for North Cotabato quake survivors


The Davao City government, in partnership with the Philippine Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP), will provide stress debriefing for earthquake survivors to cope with their trauma from the tremors and aftershocks during the last two months.

The City Social Services Development Office (CSSDO) will conduct stress debriefing sessions with quake survivors in North Cotabato.

The teams composed of various volunteers groups underwent training on holding stress debriefing sessions for Kidapawan City and the towns of Tulunan and Makilala in North Cotabato.

“Their recovery is a long process and we are praying for their recovery the fastest as possible. We coordinated with our Local Government Units for interventions,” said PCUP Commissioner Norman Baloro.

He said the CSSDO and PCUP have come up with a holistic approach on how to conduct the stress debriefing sessions in the quake-hit areas.
