The local Cáritas of Funchal started its aid intervention on Madeira fulfilling individuals’ basic needs (food supply, water, shelter...). Cáritas requested to CeFIPsi the emotional and psychological support to the ones affected by the natural disaster. A team of 5 Psychologist from CeFIPsi worked with more than 1 050 children from 5 schools and more than 20 families from one of the most affected areas to help them dealing with the emotions and negative thoughts caused by the event.

Dacă faci o greșeală, recunoaște-o. Orice încercare de a o ascunde se va întoarce în cele din urmă împotriva ta. La un moment dat pacientul va simți că nu ești sincer și actul terapeutic va suferi. Mai mult, admiterea deschisă a greșelii este un model bun pentru pacienți și un semn în plus al importanței care o au pentru tine.
