  • The aim is to introduce innovative elements of art therapeutic methods and protocols into youth work and enable youth workers to work with a wider range of tools that can help youngsters to reach their full potential.

    Complex issues and obstacles that young people face today demand different approaches and we need to equip youth workers with a set of skills that will assist young people on their paths that are very challenging.

    We need to address them taking into consideration many aspects of obstacles that youngsters are facing and approaching them in a holistic manner and offer activities and tools that encompass a whole “range” of different segments of their possible expressions and to find for each issue the most appropriate “way out” or sense of relief.


    The purpose of this PDA is to introduce innovative elements of therapeutic methods and protocols into their own work and allow them to work with a wider range of tools that can enable young people to reach their full potential. The activities are adapted to work with young people in physical contact or virtually.
