24-29 April 2012 | Poland
Training course which aims at creating a space where participants can explore: the role of change in their life, how do they respond to change and how to support young people in the changes they are facing.
Creating a space where participants explore:
– the role of change in their life;
– how do they respond to change;
– how to support young people in the changes they are facing.
– When we are aware of how we deal with change, we can better respond to changes young/other people are facing.
– Change happens – the question is how we deal with it.
– Change affects us on all dimensions of life (spiritual, physical, emotional, cognitive).
– We are part of the change that we experience.
– Change is an opportunity to learn.
Qualities of our approach:
– We are process-oriented.
– We facilitate the space where different needs may be responded to.
– Whatever happens in the group may be the potential source of learning.
– We aim at creating the safe space (we share our intentions and assumptions, we are attentive to each others’ needs).
– We use diversity as a resource.
– We intend to learn from the change happening “here and now”.
– Holistic (we facilitate learning being aware that people learn in many different ways).
