Emotional s.UP.port (only program countries) in Lithuania


Training course for Youth workers, youth workers and people who work with socially vulnerable target groups.
Up to 30 participants from 10 countries!
Dates 23-27th of August, 2017 (5 days) in Lithuania;
2-3 participants per country.

Most of us pay close attention to our health and treat threats to our physical well-being as soon as they occur. We dress warmly when we feel a cold coming on, we apply bandages to cuts and scrapes, and we don’t pick at scabs as they heal. We sustain psychological injuries just as often as we do physical ones, but we are much less proactive about protecting our psychological well-being than we are our physical well-being, let alone about helping other to maintain his.
Building your emotional “muscles” is just like pumping iron at the gym. With regular practice, you can improve how you feel, how you handle challenges and how you can help others in a more constructive way.

This 5 day training course (+two travel days) will provide information on emotional heaLth and emotional support techniques that can and could be used in various situations with different target groups. Training course will have two main parts: theory and practice (forum theatre, role play and other methods). Three trainers that have experience in work with different target groups, volunteered in help lines will carry out training course. One trainer is certified Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) program trainer and is currently applying her knowledge in Lithuania.
