The main activity of the project consisted in a training course run by Anca Vieriu, ARVIS President and Miruna Maxim, psychologist, between 4 and 10 October 2015.
The course offered the participants the possibility to get a deeper knowledge upon adolescence and its risk factors, to create an original strategy of working with adolescents so as to minimize the risk factors, to test this strategy consisting in benefic alternatives to the risk attitudes/ behaviors.
The methods were those specific to non-formal education: workshops, open space, simulations etc.
We expect that this project will have a great impact upon the way teenagers are treated by their colleagues, families, teachers and the whole community.
