Living in Belgrade. Psychologist, Gestalt therapist and freelance trainer, she is working in the field of non formal education since 1995. She has been trained in Gestalt therapy, she has gone through the education of Carl Gustav Jung’s analytical psychology about symbols and dreams, she has gone through the Bert Hellinger process for Family constellation. At this moment, she is trying to combine all her knowledge and life experience, to share with people everything she learnt and felt during her life.

Is there still hope in Pandora’s Box?

In classical Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman on Earth. When Prometheus stole the fire from heaven, Zeus took vengeance by presenting Pandora to Prometheus’ brother Epimetheus. Pandora was given a beautiful jar as a wedding gift, with the clear instruction not to open it under any circumstance. Guided by her curiosity (given by the Gods), Pandora opened it and all the Evil contained escaped and spread over the Earth. She hastened to close the container, but the whole content had escaped except for one thing that was still laying at the bottom – the Spirit of Hope.

In this pandemic period, sometimes, we feel like that box, which is opened and all challenges we need to deal with are flying around. Depression, anxieties, fears, loneliness, doubts and a lot of questions we have no answers on.

Are we grounded or we lost the ground? How we deal with our body?  Could we trust the air we breathe or we prefer carbon dioxide under the mask? Are we depressed, anxious or have pandemic fatigue? Are we happy being at home or are we sick of online life? What we are missing the most? What we are afraid of?  How our future will look like? What will happen with our jobs, education, relationships? How everybody around will survive the future? How we could help the others? How we could support ourselves?

While all these questions are flying around us, like some demons, we need to look at the bottom of the box and find a hope, as a piece of gold, in order to support ourselves and young people we are working with.

During this lecture, I will give my best to encourage you to deal with the demons and play with hope.

Empathize with (inner) dragon

In this time of online life, online relationships and online reality, we more than ever need to take care of each other.

The best way to do so, as a youth workers, is to take care of ourselves in order to be good enough for young people we are working with.

More than 20 years ago, during the 90s in Serbia, group of psychology students has been learning about empathy and communication skills from the great Marshall Rosenberg.

What I have learned than, I am still practicing in my work with young people. The most important one is that we have a choice. And that we need to nurture ourselves and especially parts of ourselves we don’t appreciate so much. Our dragons, full of fire and doubts if we are able to make things better.

In this workshop, we will practice empathy to ourselves and empathy to the others, trying to feel energy and emotions in online space. We will face our dragons, cuddle them and let them fly freely.

11:00 – 12:00  predavanje s pogovorom Lessons learned the hard way or the story on the interplay between young people and a state in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic (dr. Marko Kovačič, Institute for Social Research, Zagreb)

Dr. Marko Kovacic is a research fellow in youth studies at the Institute for Social Research in Zagreb where he studies on youth work, youth participation, and youth policy. He co-authored two editorial books, two monographs, more than 20 scholarly articles, and acted as a project manager in 15 and a researcher in additional 18 projects on youth or education. He is a founder and a lecturer at the first academic youth studies program in Croatia, at the University of Rijeka. Kovacic is a national correspondent for youth for the European Commission and Council of Europe; Youth Wiki correspondent for Croatia; a member of various expert groups on youth (both on the national and European level), an evaluator for the Erasmus +, Europe for citizens and COST projects, and a supporter of a number of youth organizations.

His education includes a PhD in youth policy from the University of Ljubljana, an MA in political science from Central European University in Budapest, and an MA in public policy from the University of Zagreb where he also got his BA in political science. He was a visiting research fellow at universities in Spain and the USA, studying youth.

Lessons learned the hard way or the story on the interplay between young people and a state in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even though the world is facing the COVID-19 pandemic for less than a year, numerous texts, analysis, chapters, papers, analysis and articles have already been published about it. It almost seems there is no aspect of (social) science which is unaffected by this health, but also social and economic crisis. The same goes for young people. There has been several research attempts trying to understand how the young people were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The idea of this lecture is not to provide a comprehensive overview of the existing research but to synthetize those findings related to youth policy in various contexts. In other words, the objective of this talk is two folded – firstly, to illustrate the situation young people are facing within the context of corona crisis, and secondly to give an overview of successful and not so successful policy responses from different states on the corona-consequences on young people. By combining different sources, empirical research results, and reports of international organizations in selected European countries, the audience will learn not only about the interplay between a state and young people in the context of COVID 19 pandemic, but also get an insight on specificities young people as a social group is facing in regard to mental health issues, sociality aspects, participation aspects, economic difficulties and educational challenges.

14:00 – 15:30  delavnice GO-TÓ-v ali ne-GO-TÓ-v, to je vprašanje (Mateja Katona, Združenje za fokusing)

Mateja Katona je doktorirala iz zakonske in družinske terapije in izvaja individualne in zakonske psihoterapije v zasebnem terapevtskem in izobraževalnem inštitutu Punčica.

Leta 2013 je spoznala fokusing ter se najprej usposobila za fokusing praktika, kar ji omogoča uporabo fokusing pristopa pri psihoterapevtskem delu ter v obliki individualnih fokusing srečanj.

Kasneje je pridobila še naziv učiteljica fokusinga, kar ji omogoča, da poučuje skupine kako uporabljati fokusing zase ali s fokusing partnerjem.  Kot fokusing strokovnjak (Focusing Professional) je registrirana pri mednarodnem združenju za fokusing (The International Focusing Institute).

»Fokusing je proces v katerem spoznavamo svojo globoko notranjost, jo začnemo sprejemati, se učimo prisluhniti notranji modrosti ter uživati v globokem intimnem stiku z velikanskim svetom znotraj nas samih.«

Zase pravi, da ji je fokusing dal nekaj, kar ni iskala in ni pogrešala, saj sploh ni vedela, da obstaja. Njena lastna izkušnja globokega stika s svojo notranjostjo in s tem tudi popolnoma drugačna kvaliteta bivanja v odnosih, jo navdušuje. Profesionalni terapevtski odnosi omogočajo globok notranji stik, ki odpira prostor in čas v klientovem odnosu do njegovih lastnih vsebin. Spoznavanje, da je to, česar se dotikamo v fokusingu prvobitna izkušnja vsakega posameznika, jo spodbuja, da fokusing spoznavajo ne le posamezniki, ki iščejo pomoč, temveč predvsem strokovnjaki, ki pomagajo drugim.

GO-TÓ-v ali ne-GO-TÓ-v, to je vprašanje.

Gotovost s katero posameznik stoji v trenutni izkušnji, je globoko telesno občutje, ki povzema našo življenjsko izkušnjo. Spočetje, rojstvo in preživetje vsakega izmed nas je povezano s primarnimi odnosi, ki pomembno sooblikujejo človeško izkušnjo bivanja v tem svetu. Po rojstvu se iskanje otrokove gotovosti obrne v zunanji svet, saj zadovoljitev njegovih potreb prihaja iz zunanjega sveta. Ob tem otrok izgrajuje gotovost, da bo poskrbljeno zanj, da je življenje v svetu varno. Doživlja gotovost, da so njegove potrebe slišane in pomembne. Na tak način izgrajuje notranje delovne modele gotovosti in varnosti (Bowlby, 1988), oziroma notranja telesna občutja. Izkušnje iz zgodnjega otroštva so vtisnjene v telo (implicitne) in niso dostopne našemu zvestnemu (eksplicitnemu) spominu.

Vsaka človeška izkušnja je sestavljena iz zavestnega in nezavednega dela. Negotovost kot temeljna človeška izkušnja deluje v posamezniku, ki išče gotovost, ne glede ali se tega zaveda ali ne, na vseh ravneh njegovega bitja – telesno, čustveno, razumsko. Gre za globoko notranje doživetje situacije v kateri je ali pred katero stoji.

Delavnica bo namenjena prepletanju zaznavanja in definiranja negotovosti v celovito izkušnjo. S pomočjo fokusing pristopa bomo odkrivali plasti in globino negotovosti, ki se oblikuje v naši telesni izkušnji kot občutena telesna zaznava. Fokusing omogoča, da se približamo nezavednim vsebinam tako, da smo prisotni v naši trenutni življenjski izkušnji z odprtostjo, nevsiljivo radovednostjo, brez obsojanja in pričakovanj.  Poznavanje procesa fokusinga, ki je sicer naravna, prirojena veščina, nam odstira, da vsaka občutena telesna zaznava sama po sebi še ni(e) gotova – nedokončana, ker se spreminja, odstira in prinaša nove, sveže poglede in rešitve na situacije, ki se zdijo gotove – nespremenljive.

14:00 – 15:30 delavnice: Negotovost v času virtualnih skupnosti (Rok Gumzej, Center LOGOUT)

Rok Gumzej dipl. soc. ped. – Svetovalec in predavatelj Centra pomoči pri prekomerni rabi interneta LOGOUT
Rok Gumzej je svetovalec Centra LOGOUT, kjer pomaga družinam in posameznikom, ki se soočajo s težavami prekomerne rabe interneta. Izvaja delavnice in predavanja za mladostnike, starše, učitelje in strokovne delavce s temami uravnotežene rabe tehnologije in rizičnih spletnih vedenj. Izven delovnega mesta je aktiven pri ustvarjanju video igralskih dogodkov po Sloveniji, spremljanju spletnih kultur in iskanju novodobnih načinov pristopanja do mladih.

Negotovost v času virtualnih skupnosti
Letošnja epidemija je velik del našega vsakdana prestavila v digitalna okolja. Povečan čas na internetu pa pomeni tudi večjo izpostavljenost internetnim kulturam. Na delavnici bomo pogledali zakaj so te kulture lahko velik dejavnik pri razvoju negotovosti današnjih mladih, kaj mladi na spletu v resnici iščejo in kakšen vpliv lahko ima to iskanje na njihovo dojemanje gotovosti. Obiskali bomo nekatere virtualne skupnosti in skozi pregled konkretnih primerov razbijali ali potrjevali mite virtualnih svetov.

14:00 – 15:30 delavnice: Svetovalna praksa brez praske (Jerneja Munc, Javni zavod Mladi zmaji)

Jerneja Munc prof. lik. umet., zaposlena kot mobilna psihosocialna svetovalka, Javni zavod Mladi zmaji
Delo z ljudmi in umetnost sta dve področji zanimanja, ki sta me v življenju najbolj zaznamovali. Že zgodaj sem se srečala z ranljivimi skupinami ljudi, najprej kot prostovoljka v mladinskem centru in kasneje kot strokovna delavka v različnih organizacijah. Posvečala sem se otrokom in mladostnikom s čustvenimi in vedenjskimi težavami, ki so bile posledica nasilja in različnih oblik zlorab. Delo z njimi me je še posebej pritegnilo, želela sem biti oseba, ki jim bo znala prisluhniti in pomagati v stiski, zato sem opravila strokovni izpit s področja socialnega varstva, kasneje pa sem postala svetovalka za nasilje v družini in spolne zlorabe. Vse to pa sem nadgradila še s študijem terapije z izrazno umetnostjo (Expressive Art Therapy) pri dr. Aviju Goren-Baru.

Svetovalna praksa brez praske

Tudi za vse svetovalke in svetovalce je čas epidemije prinesel nove izzive. Veliko ali vse delo se je preselilo na digitalna orodja. Telefon, klepetalnice, video srečanja so postala stalnica. V takem okolju se del informacij o mladi osebi na drugi strani izgubi. Težje vzpostavljamo pristen stik, težje ohranjamo nadzor nad situacijo. Vseeno pa je naše delo ključnega pomena za mlade.

V času prvega vala epidemije in zaprtja mladinskih centrov sem bila na voljo mladim v stiski preko telefona, klepetalnice in video svetovanj. Predstavila vam bom primer prakse prav iz tega obdobja. Imeli se boste priložnost preizkusiti kot svetovalci v manjših skupinah na koncu pa vam bom predstavila še protokol ravnanja v kriznih situacijah, ki smo ga pripravili za mladinske centre iz Mreže mladinskih centrov Ljubljana.

Konferenca je namenjena strokovnim delavcem_kam različnih profilov iz cele Slovenije. Ponudili vam bomo znanja in veščine za lažje prepoznavanje in usmerjanje mladih v negotovih časih. Spregovorili bomo o stanju na tem področju, kako mladi doživljajo pandemijo, kakšne posledice lahko prinese in se skupaj spoznali s praktičnimi metodami za delo z mladimi.

Želimo se z vami spoznati, izmenjati izkušnje in stkati trdno vez. Družijo nas namreč isti nameni in cilji: skrb za prihodnost mladih v negotovih časih ter izboljšanje strokovnega dela na mladinskem, psihosocialnem, svetovalnem in psihoterapevtskem področju s populacijo med 10. in 29. letom starosti.

*Del konference  bo potekal v angleškem jeziku, kjer ne bo omogočenega prevajanja.

Vabimo vas, da se nam pridružite. Število mest je omejeno na 80 oseb. Kotizacija za celotno konferenco znaša 27 €, ki jo poravnate po prijavi, najkasneje do 02. 12. 2020.
