"I am what I am and I need you!"

Gemeinsam versuchten wir zu klären, was ein Trauma ist, wodurch es entstehen kann und wie wir traumatisierte Kinder besser verstehen und unterstützen können. Im Workshop wurden verschiedene Stabilisierungsübungen vermittelt, die die Kinder beim Lernen und Leben unterstützen können. Mit viel Begeisterung und Energie haben wir uns gemeinsam diesem Thema in einem mehrtätigen Workshop erfolgreich gewidmet.

Together, we have tried to clarify what a trauma is, how it emerges and how we can understand and help traumatised children. In the workshop different stabilization exercises were imparted to assist children in their learning and their living. With much enthusiasm and energy we have dedicated us successfully to this topic in a multi-day workshop.
