From 19th till 20th December, 2019 an educational workshop was held in Teslić for professionals of the Centers for Social Work and professional teams of primary schools in Tuzla Canton as part of the secondary prevention program.
BHIDAPA’s Director and Founder, Mirela Badurina, PhD, Integrative Psychotherapist for Children and Adolescents held lectures on “Children at Risk – Characteristics of Development and Risks of Developmental Age”, “Risk Factors which Can Influence the change in Children’s Behavior, with focus on consequences of abuse, neglect and high-conflict divorce on children’s health, and the implications for family and school interventions.
We were pleased to have the opportunity, through a group of experts, educators, psychologists, social workers and lawyers who work with children and families, to share, through our BHIDAPA Center, the acquired knowledge and experience in order to better understand the importance of perennial, peer and school environments for development of emotional and behavioral problems in children, with the aim of creating unique standards and preventative child protection programs.
We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to establish and strengthen interdisciplinary and intersectoral cooperation in understanding and creating prevention programs, because this is the only way we can protect the child.
The training was organized by the Human Rights Bureau through the Justice for Every Child project, supported by UNICEF and BiH level ministries, and the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council of BiH.
