What is Emergency Pedagogy and how to use it in work with young people?

Millions of youngsters experience situations that often leave them severely traumatized and alone. Natural disasters, wars, violence claim numerous victims every day. Unprocessed trauma may disturb the natural development of young people.

The project “From Crisis to Chance – training course on emergency pedagogy” was born from the need to equip youth workers with more skills to work with youngsters that are at-risk of developing post-stress disorders in order. The objective of this Training Course was to help youth workers to cope and integrate these experiences in their biography so that their natural development would not be disturbed.

One of the outcomes from this Capacity Building Training Course organized by Spin Association in Lisbon is this BROCHURE. You can find there indications on how the youth workers can apply Emergency Pedagogy in their daily work with children and youngsters at-risk of developing post-stress disorders.
