Wise mind is an innovative project which aims to train trainers in group home settings for traumatized young people they work with.
Turkey, Italy, Poland, Greece, Bulgaria, Netherlands and Slovakia met in Istanbul between 4 – 5th February where we discussed the tasks of each involved partner and stakeholder and project activities.
One part of the project will be to train the youth workers in crisis management. The other part addresses the underlying issues, we will implement the Wise-Mind system. Thirdly, we will assess the impact of teachings on youth worker knowledge and youth worker burn-out. The Wise-Mind system will involve a modular program, with information regarding the stress and relaxation response, self evaluation and awareness, exercises to develop resiliency.
We will organize the next meeting in Bratislava.
