Residents, living in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, are almost daily confronted with drug related violence. Similarly, local social educators working with children and young adults in these slums, also frequently live amidst this extreme violence. However, while this gives them a thorough understanding of the needs of the people they work with, it may also sometimes interfere with their ability to assist others, and they may sometimes be in need of support themselves. A local nongovernmental organisation has started developing a training for these social educators, in order to assist them to better understand their own coping strategies, as well as how these strategies influence their daily work with traumatised children and young adults.
