Discover "Harmony Within," a transformative Training Course tailored for professionals in youth work. This program focuses on cultivating self-care, well-being, and resilience among youth workers to enhance their support for young people.

The course equips participants with essential knowledge, skills, and attitudes to prioritize their mental health and well-being, emphasizing psychological hygiene basics. It addresses the unique challenges youth workers face while promoting positive mental health and resilience.

Participants will delve into understanding common mental health issues in young people, recognizing early signs of distress, and implementing evidence-based prevention and intervention strategies. The training integrates practical techniques and self-care practices for daily application in youth work.

If your transport to and from the training stays within this budget, you pay nothing. If you go over the budget, you pay the difference. Reimbursement is only possible when we are in possession of your personal details and all original tickets/boarding passes as proof of transport costs incurred.
