“In the past few years, the Archdiocesan Center for Youth Pastoral John Paul II has been working intensively on child protection programs through independent programs but also through cooperation with other governmental and non-governmental organizations.
Accordingly, in cooperation with BH IDAPA, the European accredited educational program in child and adolescent integrative psychotherapy, we organized a two-day training to strengthen teachers’ competencies in recognizing children at risk. The training was held from 11 to 12 September 2020, on the topic of Children at Risk, Basic Prevention Programs in a Pandemic Environment and Self-Care. The training for teachers was held by Dr. Mirela Badurina, child and adolescent psychotherapist, founder and director of BHIDAPA. “
“During the lecture, teachers had the opportunity to hear about the impact of COVID-19 on mental health, and where we are currently as experts, what knowledge we need now. Then they had the opportunity to learn more about how to talk and listen to a child. take into account everything he feels, while being able to be responsible for his own mental health. “
