NGO CRISIS COUNSELING

Pascale offers crisis counseling to expatriate staff of Relief International based in 16 countries over Skype when they experience a traumatic experience while in the field or suffer a personal crisis. She served as a psychologist to West African refugees on Samos Island, Greece, who had fled their home countries because of extreme violence and threats of death. She also trained local staff in Bangladesh who work with Rohingya refugees in Stress Management, Resilience and Self-Care, and met with them individually for counseling. She provided similar training and counseling to local staff in Juba and Maban, South Sudan, and in Nairobi Kenya. In addition, she was deployed to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake to provide grief counseling to civilians and hospital staff who had lost many family members and friends.

"Acute grief is a thunderstorm, a monsoonal downpour, a sudden flood that submerges almost everything in its path."
