Study Visit Czech Republic

Under the Project Coaching-Innovative approach for better integration of refugees (Grundtvig Program-Learning Partnerships) a second study visit took place in Czech Republic between 20-22 March 2014. It was organized by Caritas Prague in partnership with Association Pro Refuge Romania, Human Rights League Slovakia.

A total number of 12 participants (trainers, learners) from Romania, Czech Republic and Slovakia were actively involved.

With the occasion of the event participants visited a Reception Center for asylum seekers from Prague and also had interactive discussions in relation with the development of the coaching manual for refugees’ assistance such as: major chapters, forms of coaching (intercultural coaching, life coaching, trauma recovery coaching and career coaching), methods and techniques that could be inserted in the manual. The coaching manual represents one of the major project’s results intended to help professionals (social workers, psychologists from NGOs and institutions) to become familiar with an alternative way of support for refugees by using coaching methods rather than the traditional counselling process.
