Teachers in Bergamo become Tutors of Resilience for children
Cesvi is offering teachers in Ambito 1, Bergamo (Municipalities of Bergamo, Gorle, Orio al Serio, Ponteranica, Sorisole and Torre Boldone) the chance to take part in a Tutors of Resilience training course within the scope of the European project PEARLS for Children. The course will be held by the Resilience Research Unit (RiRes) pertinent to the Department of Psychology of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan, and will involve teachers in schools of all types and levels. As a result, the teachers can become Tutors of Resilience for children and also trainers with respect to the model of Tutors of Resilience. The course, completely free of charge, consists of 3 consecutive modules of about 24 hours to be held between September 2021 and April 2022; the recognition of MIUR training credits is set out.
Teachers who do not have the chance of taking part in the first course will have access to the free training to become Tutors of Resilience for children held by the teachers trained during the first training course (24 consecutive hours to April 2022). This training will be central to enabling teachers to have more tools for the recognition of the signs of abuse and neglect and giving their students more comforting, timely answers appropriate to their needs.
In addition to teachers, the training will involve other professionals in Ambito 1, Bergamo, from the medical-health sectors, social services and police. The aim is to create a multi-disciplinary network able to share tools and approaches locally to give co-ordinated, effective answers to prevent and fight cases of emotional and physical negligence and child maltreatment and abuse.
Teachers in Ambito 1, Bergamo, interested in or looking for more information on this training course or the project can contact Maura Brandoni, by e-mail (email@example.com) by 21.06.21.

The project is implemented by CESVI in Ambito Territoriale 1, Bergamo, in Italy.
