Kenya: Senior Program Coordinator, Security Actors Programme

Organization: Green String Network
Country: Kenya
Closing date: 20 Jun 2018

Green String Network (GSN) is a Kenyan not-for-profit organization that brings together professionals and experts in the field of conflict transformation, peace building, trauma-healing practices and development of sustainable economic programs.

At GSN and as supported by research, we believe there is a direct link between trauma and the successful implementation of social wellbeing programs, security matters, economic stability, justice and governance. Over the years we have seen how the application of trauma healing practices significantly impacted individuals and communities in a positive manner. Previous interventions that have not addressed trauma among individuals and communities have tended to be less impactful than trauma-informed practices. Trauma, and the effect thereof, is largely overlooked as a critical factor when it comes to evaluating the outcomes of interventions.

We look at long-term stability and progress through a trauma lens. GSN designs training and intervention programs that recognises the existence of trauma and its effect in communities affected by long-term conflict. We incorporate strategic communication and support a learning agenda. We communicate in a culturally appropriate way and our programs have an inbuilt, evidence based research component.

GSN acknowledges that leaders in Africa and beyond are exposed to stressful and traumatic events either in their own lives or in the lives of the people they serve. We believe that a healthy and balanced leader can facilitate and animate communities and its people to be resilient in times of hardship and conflict, war or turmoil. It is in this spirit that we want to embark on a trauma-informed training program for the Kenya Police Service.

The Trauma-Informed Initiative for Security Actors project focuses on “dealing with the past” by providing police tools for re-examination of traumatic events and methods to enhance mental wellbeing and resiliency. Research suggests a link between traumatic experiences and criminal behaviour. Traumatized individuals’ negative encounters with the justice system could further exacerbate this phenomenon. Police officers need to be equipped through a self-healing process and be able to recognize the effects of trauma in the communities they serve. We believe that our program will begin to prepare the police officers for these difficult tasks.

Police officers are exposed to traumatic events as part of their occupation and who experience repeated exposure to traumatic on-the-job practices may suffer psychological problems such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). They are also exposed to stress inherent in their jobs which is considered customary, but which exceeds stress inherent in most other professions. Police respond to every suicide and fatal car accident and arguably exposed to more death and trauma than troops of war. The effects of trauma are often ignored, resulting in high levels of suicide, divorce, and addictions. Often under appreciated, these men and women help make our communities safer every day. Unfortunately working under constant stress and pressure, many police officers suffer from the effects of trauma and some become affected with PTSD. There is very little support given to police officers.
