Tutors of Resilience – TDR


In order to raise the level of resiliency among Syrian children living in vulnerable environments inside Syria and Lebanon, Adyan, in collaboration with the Resilience Research Unit at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart (UCSC), pursued the provision of intensive training workshops to Syrian tutors to save to the children a friendly space.

Based on Adyan Manuals of peace education and psychosocial support and UCSC guidebook on Tutors of Resilience, consecutive training sessions are being offered to Syrian tutors, to wider their knowledge and upscale practical skills while adapting to difficult environment and supporting traumatized children.

On their theoretical and practical levels, specific topics are been provided on psycho-social support, resilience, no strings’ educational techniques and tools (NSI), management of diversity, and emotional support and discharge.

Based on the training, educational and interactive sessions are designed and implemented in the local partners’ centers.
