Aims & objectives

The aim of the project was to prepare youth workers, trainers, project coordinators, and mentors to deal with situations and act accordingly, when participants of your activities experience a crisis and find it difficult to continue with the activity. As a continuation of the training course "No Panic", we dedicated more time to practice Solution Focused conversations, adding more empathy practice, and moments of sharing the experience and competence between the participants.
