  • Integration assistants and guides
  • Staff in educational institutions and authorities
  • Actors in regular psychiatric and psychotherapeutic services and other medical care facilities
  • Interpreters

Main topics that we cover:

  • Strategies for dealing with mentally distressed or ill refugees
  • Specifics of working with unaccompanied refugee minors
  • Understanding of health and illness
  • Fundamental knowledge of trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Intercultural aspects in psychotherapy
  • Self-care when working with refugees
  • Language and cultural mediation in the healthcare sector
  • Language and cultural mediation in therapeutic settings for psychologists/therapists/interpreters

These are one-time events (lectures/consultations/workshops), but we can also provide process support according to your wishes and needs. Depending on the request, we consider training sessions of at least 3 hours as professionally meaningful. The training sessions are also available on-site, meaning we are happy to come to you. At least 5 participants should express interest in our offering.
