” The ones who bear the biggest responsibility for a child’s development are their parents, educators, teachers and the society as a whole, who often obstruct the child’s development instead of being helpful and supportive, due to ignorance or a lack of knowledge, and distorted beliefs about what is good for the child.
Unfortunately, nowadays the number of lonely and insecure children is increasing, children who seek the solution in various addictions, aggression, depression, suicide. More and more children are traumatized and abused.
The aim of EIATSCYP is to help children grow up in a healthy and happy way, through numerous activities that include educating parents, teachers and the society, as well as training the professionals in working with children through various educations and training for counselors and psychotherapists.
Furthermore, we develop approaches and techniques in working with children with various issues, such as trauma victims, children from wrecked families, children with different developmental disorders, by including experts in the field of perserving mental health of children and adolescents.”
