HELPING together – Join us!

Read this page in German or Ukrainian.

We want to help Ukrainian refugees to cope with distress and uncertainty by offering six online training courses, each with two 4-hour sessions.

The training focuses on learning the HEAL method, the process of turning positive and supportive experiences into lasting inner strengths:  

Have a positive experience, Enrich it, Absorb it, and Link (optional) the positive experience to negative material in order to soothe and even replace it.” HEAL is the essence of the positive neuroplasticity training PNT developed by the neuropsychologist Rick Hanson Ph. D 

Refugees learn to deliberately focus their attention on healing experiences, they relearn how to relax and how to feel safe and connected. 

At the same time the program aims at encouraging engagement whilst supporting the volunteers and field workers, who are also exposed to a lot of the stress due to the crisis. 

Don’t hesitate, register and join us! 

You can find out more about the project “HELP – Helping refugees to HEAL” here.
