Moving Together - pdf

Moving Together: Promoting psychosocial well-being through sport and physical activity is a new handbook jointly produced by ICSSPE, the Reference Centre for Psychosocial Support of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the Swiss Academy for Development, and Technical University of Munich.


The publication intends to enable practitioners and experts in sociology, psychology, social work, sport and physical education to provide psychosocial support programmes to people in crisis situations.


The first part of the handbook gives the theoretical framework for sport and physical activities in psychosocial support interventions.  The second part presents 28 activity cards that explain how to facilitate activities, how they can be adapted to different circumstances, and how they can be used as a basis for discussion and reflection. The third part explains how to promote psychosocial interventions with sport and physical activities.


The publication has been developed with funding from the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme.
