Speakers: Anne-Claude Lambelet e Sabine E. Baerlocher (SIETAR Switzerland)
Join us as we review the integration and developmental challenges facing globally mobile children & adolescents. This session will explore how Intercultural Training can be adapted to benefit this category of trainees. Hear what practical steps can be taken by trainers to offer a « safe space » for both parents and children to explore feelings and concerns, develop knowledge and strategies to build a robust family project as they embark on their discovery journey. 2 professionals who face this situation in the training room on a daily basis will share perspectives and tips.
