Japan Floods occurred in the vast area and killed 126 after torrential rain and landslides in July 2018.
We offered the seminar for disaster assistance in International Pacific University, Okayama Campus with JEMDRA-HAP in Sep 15-17.
On September 15th (Sat), 17 (Mon), Japan’s torrential rain disaster support seminar, “Overcoming the Power of the Region” – seminar on how to take care of your heart after the disaster was held at ipu Pacific University. There was also a promotion for the humanitarian support program in Japan.
From experts to students, a lot of people have joined. In particular, many of the trans-Pacific University students have already participated in volunteer support for disaster support, and we believe that we have learned skills to support interpersonal aid and regions, and we believe that it will be a great power to support reconstruction.
Dr. Niki, M.D. (Chairperson of JEMDRA-HAP) and Dr. Morikawa, Ph.D. (Chairperson of JATFT) lectured the importance of mental health care and introduced the practical techniques, TFT and HRV Coherence Breathing.
The audience was doctors, nurses, teachers, counselors, public workers, students, and lay people.
The students of IPU have engaged in volunteer activities in the disaster areas and added the new skills of TFT to heal others.
We introduced TFT Foundation’s contributions to Rwanda as a good model of community recovery from tragedy.
