How to communicate with families and children affected by migration? 25 social will attend a training in February to find the answer

Between 23 to 24 February 2017, 25 social workers from Arges and Valcea counties are expected to attend the third training course on effective communication with and for people affected by migration (children whose parents are working abroad, children repatriated or refugees and their families etc).

Organized within the project “Regional Resource Center for Child Protection in Southeast Europe” and endorsed by CNASR, the course aims at developing the capacity of social workers to communicate effectively with migrants, as well as with other social actors or with their colleagues in an effort to ensure an integrated social protection to those in need.

In social casuistry, children affected by migration and their families represent a vulnerable group with special communication needs as a result of the psychosocial stress that they are experiencing temporarily or an indefinite time period. The ability of social workers to communicate and relate in a proper way with these beneficiaries is crucial in order to reduce the tension and anxiety, as well as to identify the best measures of protection or social assistance.

The training course was held for the first time in Craiova, 27 to 28 June, 2016, and then re-delivered in Bucharest, on September 20 to 21st, 2016. Social workers attending the course from Pitesti will receive updated content and will join a network of more than 40 colleagues from the southeast region, who learned to be good communicators, astute and careful in dealing with vulnerable people.
