This offer of the training is for you if:
✔ you work with other people – as your target group and/or as your partners and
✔ you have experienced conflict situations between people, and you would like to explore how to react in those situations in a nonviolent way, still being able to fully express yourself – from the perspective of a supporter/ mediator or yourself being involved
✔ you are open to try different methods connected with body, voice, nature, drama to
reflect on your needs, emotions, and the communication process
This project anticipates developing competences of youth workers to communicate in a
nonviolent way – acknowledging own and others’ needs, recognising and expressing emotions, building peaceful relations with young people, and co-workers.
Name of the project comes from two methods which inspired us to develop the idea, and are the main methodologies upon which has been constructed the programme for the activity of the project. THEATRE refers to Theatre of the Oppressed and applied drama methodology, created by Augusto Boal, a theatre director, and community and social activist. GIRAFFE refers to emphatic communication language – called the language of giraffe, from Nonviolent Communication method by Marshall Rosenberg, a psychologist and mediator.
Registration open until 5th of August.
Participation fee is 20€, which covers the administrative work from our side.

The aim of the project is to prepare you – youth workers, trainers, project coordinators, and mentors to deal with situations and act accordingly, when participants of your activities experience a crisis and find it difficult to continue with the activity.What to do when participant finds is too challenging to take an active part in the project?Some of them, for example, had to deal with a situation of a psychological crisis, a sudden death of a close relative, disclosure of a mental disease. Others, in long term projects, may experience intercultural shock or find it extremely difficult to establish satisfactory relations in the new environment.
Do you as a coordinator, trainer, mentor in this situation feel confusion, anxiety and helplessness? Often we can manage to deal with a concrete solution somehow, but with many difficulties. However, there is always a question of how far does our responsibility as a facilitator or coordinator go? And how to be supportive, yet allowing the responsibility for managing this situation to the participant, at the same time?How to deal with our own frustration coming from my limited position?This training course anticipates developing competences to communicate with participants of your activities who find themselves in crisis or difficult situations during the activities. The aim is to prepare you to deal with situations when participants experience a crisis and find it difficult to continue with the activity.
