MORNING WORKSHOP: with stART international and Aeham Ahmad

Learn about trauma prevention work with children in war zones and areas hit by natural disaster, with stART international and Aeham Ahmad.

Trauma is something which all of us carry to different degrees. Many of our fellow humans suffer daily from trauma inflicted by war situations and natural disasters. What can we do to help?

* Hear about stART international's first hand experience working with children and adults in places that have been hit by war or natural disaster.

* Learn about trauma and resilience. 

* Make music with Aeham Ahmad and learn some songs and exercises that give insight into the working of trauma pedagogy.
