Pilot Project “Recognition – Management – Expression of Emotions”

Pilot Project “Recognition – Management – Expression of Emotions”

The pilot project “Recognition-Management-Expression of Emotions” that was held at the 150th Elementary School of Kypseli in collaboration with the NGO ERGO Learning for life, was successfully completed.

The intervention took place in parents of children of the first class. Parents were trained in the program “Nourishing the Child’s Brain” in order to learn to recognize and to name the feelings of their children, to practice empathy, to use the technical support in expressing and managing their emotions.

The parents expressed their satisfaction as they noticed the improvement on the relations and communication between them and their children. We thank them all and wish you good luck.

SOS Children’s Villages

SOS Children’s Villages

We are really-really happy to announce the successful conclusion of the fund-raising campaign at www.giveandfund.com, co-organized by the SOS Children’s Villages Greece and Brace Social Coop, for the training of the SOS Mothers in the Marte Meo Communication Skills.

As the members of Brace’s scientific specialists offer voluntarily their psycho-educational services for free, we needed 3,500 euros to cover the functional costs of the training. To our surprise and great pleasure, the amount raised in the campaign exceeded our original target, filling us all with enthusiasm, joy and renewed dedication to our goal.

We wholeheartedly thank all those who contributed to our project with their donations. Whether big or small, they are all invaluable, making plausible the psychological support of the SOS Mothers and Children and thus helping them form secure and trustworthy bonds between them. For their important contribution to our efforts, we are also grateful to the campaign’s Ambassadors and Supporters.
Thank you everyone!

Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime, an ancient Chinese proverb says! Neither one, nor two but 26 experts from the fields of education and mental health had the chance to participate in a training course that promotes social and financial skills to children, so that they can escape the dangers of poverty and social exclusion, and equips professionals to disseminate the information to their colleagues and partners.

The training took place in May, 5-7 at the hospitable Youth House of the SOS Children’s Villages in P. Faliro and has been an initiative of the Dutch institution Aflatoun International, the psycho-educational agent Brace Social Coop, the NGO Ergo-Learning for life, and the SOS Children’s Villages Greece. We wholeheartedly thank Aflatoun International’s facilitator Mrs Chiara Massaroni for her incessant energy, while introducing us to the challenges and benefits of children’s entrepreneurial spirit and the acquisition of basic survival skills. A big thank you also to Mrs Christina Bletsou, who gladly and tirelessly translated all the important information. as well as every little exchange between the participants in Greek and vice versa. Last but not least, we would like to thank all those highly-trained experts who came from all over Greece to participate in the course and help us promote social and financial education.
