A WHO workforce development package for psychological interventions
EQUIP will be an open-access platform for resources and guidance to facilitate competency-based trainings and improve the assessment of competency for delivery of psychological and psychosocial interventions (Kohrt et al., 2020), with an emphasis on foundational skills including common factors. The World Health Organization and Academic Partner George Washington University, are currently working with seven field partners (Ethiopia, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Perú, Uganda, and Zambia) to test resources, including competency assessments with a digital version of ENACT competencies and treatment-specific competencies to inform competency-based training, implementation guidance, and e-Learning courses. https://www.who.int/mental_health/emergencies/equip/en/
