Groups for childrenIn 2017, MindSpring Competence Center developed MindSpring for refugee children.
MindSpring groups for children are something for you, if you have fled the war in your home country and are between 9 and 14 years old. As a child you can participate in MindSpring groups for children, whether you arrived with your family or not. In a children's group, you will meet other children, who have had experiences similar to yours. You will also learn more about:
- What it means to be a refugee in a foreign country
- To understand feelings like being scared, angry, or sad
- Get "tools" to handle these feelings
- What strengths and good experiences you have in your life
You will meet other children, who have also had to leave their home country - some of them might possibly have it just like you. You can tell each other about your experiences, and maybe you will find that you are not alone with your thoughts. In the group you will meet new friends, whom you have much in common with. Maybe some friendships will arise, which will continue after the MindSpring course is over.
MindSpring Competence Center has already trained the first group of volunteer trainers in November 2017. The first MindSpring groups for children began in the local host region on January this year.
