More Resilience Tolokas

Event guests

Today we must develop and develop, learn new things and share knowledge, teach and learn, be strong and strengthen the community in order to build a free and independent future of our country. Strengthening one’s resilience in order to be able to respond to events with empathy for oneself, for the people around, for the country is task No. 1 on the way to restoring Ukraine and healing society.

We invite one foreign expert to the event, who are recognized in a certain field and can strengthen Ukrainian teachers in difficult times of war.

Based on the results of each event, we prepare a booklet with the best speaker ideas, an audio podcast of the meeting, a video notebook of the most iconic ideas, and you can also get a certificate.

We invite you to walk with us on the path of building resilience!

What is the event about?

This event is two hours rich with games, good news, an expert lecture with practices to strengthen mental health and resilience, as well as reflection.

Hibuki-School

About the therapeutic method

The course we offer provides training in universal therapeutic methods of dealing with the consequences of any traumatic events by using the therapeutic method “Hibuki-therapy.”

We created a program “Hibuki-School: the use of the Hibuki therapeutic toy in educational institutions in war and post-war times and within the framework of integration with the SEEL program” specifically for Ukrainian teachers.

The course we offer provides training in universal therapeutic methods of dealing with the consequences of any traumatic events by using the therapeutic method “Hibuki-therapy.”

photo

For whom?

The training to work with the Hibuki toy will now be available not only to psychologists, but also to the entire teaching community.

Classes with the Hibuki toy will contribute to:

  • strengthening inclusive education;
  • the development of soft skills, in particular, the ability to communicate and work in a team;
  • learning to empathize with oneself and others, creativity, and critical thinking.

The last two items are fully reflected in the program of socio-emotional and ethical learning, and one of the modules of learning will be devoted to the model of combining the potential of these two tools (SEEL and Hibuki-therapy).

Book

This guide is designed to introduce pedagogical workers, educators of educational institutions, psychological services workers and institution administrations to the possibilities of the Hibuki therapy method and to demonstrate its effectiveness in order to stabilize the child during the educational process and reduce the symptoms of stress and injuries Download it on demand and enjoy, friends!

War Fault Lines. Can We Sew Them Together?

Given the multifaceted nature of the problems caused by the war, social and political polarization in society is intensifying between the groups of people with different experiences; moreover, the threshold for acceptance of otherness and other experiences is decreasing, which complicates everyday and social interaction and, in particular, the educational process for children and youth.

The initiative will make it possible to convey to our society and the international community what challenges the Ukrainian people are overcoming while living in war conditions, how difficult decisions are made, and how important it is now to learn to look at the situation from two opposite positions in order to understand each other and connect together.

photo

This initiative is a multifaceted multi-construction and offers:

  • text stories written with the Jack Grapes Method Writing that reveal counterpositions;
  • images for themes and stories made by well-known illustrators;
  • audio versions of texts in the podcast format;
  • video announcements.

My War. Lessons for the Humanity

EdCamp Ukraine has started an initiative that will help to highlight the status quo in Ukrainian education and build an image of school at wartime — a series of 27 interviews with educators who are located or have moved from different regions of Ukraine, about their work during the war, the functioning of educational institutions and personal feelings and senses during  the wartime.

Сrowdfunding campaign

As part of the project, an international crowdfunding campaign will be launched to collect funds to help teachers. The funds will be spent on the purchase of laptops and packages for Internet access, as well as on psychological help for teachers.

Results of material support

We supported 58 teachers with technological kits.

Having bought a set for remote work — a laptop, a computer mouse, a router, headphones — for those teachers who want to teach children, but because of the war they lost this opportunity, because now they do not have the necessary equipment.

Results of psychological support

We provided personal psychological consultations to 55 teachers. Based on the results of the work of specialists, a support book was developed for all who need support in difficult times of war.

Thanks to partners

Crowdfunding campaign “My war. Lessons” and the purchase of technological kits was implemented with the financial support of the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation — a Project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States and the international non-governmental organization Save the Children and Education Cannot Wait# ECW.

Psychological support was provided in partnership with ChildFund Deutschland, with the financial support of Aktionsbündnis Katastrophenhilfe.

Interview series “My War. Lessons for Humanity” was produced with the financial support of Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation – a Project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
