Brief description

The course strives to cover child abuse in its entirety. The main goal is for professionals to recognize the concept, forms and symptoms of abuse and its effects on the children who have become victims. In addition, the course tries to make them aware of their role in the treatment of children who have suffered from child abuse, regardless of their field of operation, and let them understand the motives of the perpetration and also the necessity of the appropriate treatment of the abuser. In the course of the program, the participants have the opportunity to develop their skills, leading them to successfully recognize child abuse, its progression and the appropriate intervention and provision of help.

The 32-hour course lasts four days, after which the participants receive a certificate, and in the personal care worker training systems we confirm 40 points (the trainig is accredited).

The education is offered in group form (max. 24 persons) namely workshops and seminars.

The training tries to raise awareness about abuse. The first and the second block focuses on the recognition and treatment of the symptoms, the third block is already working on the incorporation of the new knowledge. This is followed by the development of skills. During this part process analysis and enhancing the quality of communication is taught by using role-playing games.
