Sounds of Silence – Hollókő, Hungary

Training Course

4-10 October 2017 | Hollókő, Hungary

This Training Course is for 24 participants from Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain.

Our aim is to explore the sounds of silence and perceive it as a powerful tool, which contributes to qualitative group learning processes.

We believe that silence is one of the basic tools for those, who work with groups of young people, even though we might not be aware of it.

It is very common to use silent moments while doing activities with groups of young people. Silence can also influence the atmosphere of the group and its learning processes.

To achieve the aim of the training course we set up the following objectives:
– Create a common understanding of silence as a supportive tool for learning
– Conscious experiencing of silence as an individual and in a group context
– Use silence for participants’ personal and professional development through self- and group reflection (self-discipline, self-expression, self-awareness)
– The recognition of applying silence in diverse ways (e.g. coaching, mentoring, mindfulness, storytelling, focus exercises etc.) in youth work

Profile of participants:
– Trainers, facilitators, youth workers, social workers, teachers, educators, who has relevant working experience with groups of young people.
– Opened to self-discovery/self-awareness and interested about quality improvement in youth work.
