Azra Arnautović, Belma Žiga, Đana Lončarica, Mirela Badurina, Mirjana Gavrić-Hopić, Sabina Zijadić-Husić, Selma Gaši, Senka Čimpo i Srebrenka Hota are the first generation of graduate child and adolescent integrative psychotherapists in BiH, promoted today at the Faculty of Economics in Sarajevo.
Psychotherapist Mirela Badurina pointed out that the students completed their studies under a program initiated by the BiH Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Association (BHIDAPA) to earn a diploma in child and adolescent psychotherapy because of the great need for this staff.
– Research shows that every fourth child in early adolescence suffers and is at risk of developing a mental disorder. In BiH, on the other hand, there is a shortage of staff and professionals to work with children and adolescents. We have no more time, we have to work networked and cooperate well to save a child – said Badurina.
Their professors Dubravka Kocijan-Hercigonja, Vera Daneš-Brozek and Lidija Petocić, in front of whom they laid their final papers. also had great credit for the success of the young psychotherapists. After taking the oath, the students presented a song to their professor Dubravka Kocijan-Hercigonja.
