Act Church of Sweden (Act CoS) has developed three Community-Based Psychosocial Support (CBPS) e-learning modules which are available on the online learning platform Fabo, administered by the DanChurchAid Learning Lab (DCA LL). The modules are an excellent tool to get familiar with CBPS on a very basic level with Module 1 and 2 in less than an hour, and even take a further step towards applying CBPS with Module 3, also just taking another hour to complete.

CBPS: Module 1 takes no more than 10 minutes and focus on “Why you should apply CBPS”.

CBPS: Module 2 takes about 45 minutes and focus on “What CBPS is”, looking into the following aspects:  

The concept of psychosocial wellbeing
Understanding different layers of psychosocial support
How the CBPS core principles relate to other standards  
CBPS: Module 3 takes about an hour to complete and focus on “How to integrate and mainstream CBPS into programmes”, building on Module 1 and 2. It looks into the following aspects:

Applying the six core principles of CBPS
Integrating indicators
Tools and materials for strengthening projects and programmes
Module 1 and 2 are available in English, Spanish and French, and Module 3 in English and Spanish. Below, you can find an introduction document to the modules in each language, providing an overview and guiding through the process of accessing each learning module. It is encouraged to share the introduction documents and modules as needed, such as with colleagues or within your organisations.
