Call for proposals  trainers in psychological first aid and trauma-informed approaches and to participate in subsequent knowledge transfer   

The Partners Hungary Foundation is implementing a joint programme in cooperation with the International Step by Step Association (ISSA). The aim is to increase the knowledge of professionals working in the field of early childhood development and education, as well as education, who work with disadvantaged children, mainly Roma, who are refugees from Ukraine and living in Hungary. The focus of the trainer training is on psychological first aid and trauma-sensitive approaches.

  • What are the signs that a child or their family has been directly or indirectly traumatised? 
  • How can it be treated, what tools can be used to mitigate the effects of trauma? 

During the training you will have the opportunity to join an international community of trainers. You can meet colleagues from abroad (Slovenian, Romanian, Ukrainian, Belgian, Dutch) who also have a lot of experience in the professional field of early childhood and are happy to share their knowledge with us.
