Implementation of the HAND:ET Program is going full steam ahead – half of the planned encounters have already been reached!

ISRZ team: We enjoy working with our groups of teachers, principals and school counsellors. They are interested and eager to practise and implement some of the exercises in their daily lives. It is very rewarding that we encounter participants’ openness and that we have already received some feedback about the program being meaningful for their private and professional lives.

Field trials Update from Croatia article 2

As the HAND:ET Program consists of onsite and online trainings, 3 onsite and 3 online trainings have been held for each group of teachers.

ISRZ team: Both participants and trainers prefer seeing each other and working in person. However, online encounters have also been pleasant. They are especially appropriate for emphatic listening exercises, as they provide the intimacy of the separate virtual rooms.

HAND:ET ISRZ team is looking forward to seeing the rest of the participants’ journey through the HAND:ET program. They hope to witness further growth in the group trust and to hear how and where participants use the insights and the skills acquired during the training.
