Welcome to The Field Guide for Barefoot Psychology
The Field Guide for Barefoot Psychology is an educational and psychosocial support program for individuals and communities affected by stress and trauma. TFG aims to clarify why and how adverse experiences can affect the brain, body, and social behavior, and to provide specific information and exercises to ameliorate the effects of stress and trauma, improve emotion regulation, and build resilience.
All registered users on this platform will have access to sample content, whereas the full platform is reserved for users registered in Field Groups.
TFG combines different methods of content delivery, including storytelling, psychoeducation (scientific information), and practical skills for emotion regulation.
The content of the Guide is intended for a wide audience, including professional aid workers, community workers or volunteers, and individuals interested in learning about the effects of stress and trauma on the brain, body, and social behavior. The content is safe and relevant for those 18 years of age and above and can be delivered by trained community facilitators, or can be used individually, self-paced.
