Wednesday June 30th, 2021, the Psycho-Spiritual Institute of Lux Terra Leadership Foundation in partnership with Nasarawa State University, Keffi, hosted its 2nd Certificate Award Ceremony for 189 successful participants at its “Basic Psycho-Trauma Healing Skills” training programmes, held between 2019 and 2020.
Among dignitaries at the event were Professor Andrew Zamani, former President of the Nigerian Psychological Association and Dr Samuel Alhassan, Head of the Dept of Psychology, Nasarawa State University.
Participants at the training programme were mainly drawn from the states of Northern Nigeria, with a few others from the South. They included Doctors, Clinical Psychologists, Social Workers, University Teachers, functionaries of Emergency Relief Agencies, Christian and Muslim Religious Leaders, and Sundry Volunteers, especially those who assist trauma victims in IDP camps.
The event featured presentations on the multiple crises and distressful situations in the country and why ongoing trauma counseling and psychological support are an urgent imperative in Nigeria.
Apart from the course participants who received their certificates, we also had faculty members, friends and partners of Lux Terra Leadership Foundation, who were present to witness the event.
