How is this imprisonement of a friend or colleague affecting you? How can you balance support, care, and self-care? The detention might put you in the situation of supporting crisis work and/or the family in their everyday needs, but it also calls for making an effort to care for yourself.
In this section, the experiences, suggestions, and bullet points were written down by people who supported crisis management and families in this situation before. Some of them have a professional background in crisis management or human right's work, others don't. More pieces were added by family members who try to emphazise the kind of support they found helpful to receive.
Again, it is up to you, the reader, to pick what you find helpful and empowering and dismiss what does not feel like that. The experiences of family invite you to take their perspective and reflect your offers for support.
