'Learn to love, learn to trust'

grup de suport cartell 2maig191On Thursday May 2 at 6.00pm, the Sala d'Actes (next to Sant Francesc library) will host the psychologist Pepa Horno for a talk called “Learn to love, learn to trust”. Organised by the CiF social welfare office, the free event is part of the activities programme for the “Family Support Group” (Grup de Suport Familiar) and is included in the programme of a CEP-sponsored initiative known as the Escola de Pares i Mares.

Members of the audience will hear about how families and educators involved in raising children can work towards emotional “self-regulating”. Horno described the goal as building on children's and teens' emotional strength by moving away from fear and showing them how to recognise their emotions, creating a solid affective network they can rely on when scared or sad.

School for parents and teachers: The collective art of raising a child.

escola-pares-mestres-2019-xarx1The Formentera Council's education department unveiled today the 2019 programme of “School for parents and teachers: The collective art of raising a child”. The programme covers three informational talks for parents and teachers that will take place between next Tuesday March 6 and Thursday May 2.

The initiative is about creating places of learning and exchange between families and educators. The idea, says education and culture councillor Susana Labrador, “is to come up with common learning space where everyone has a voice—that's where the organising efforts of the CiF education office, the Federation of Formentera Parents Associations (FAPA) and the CEP teacher training centre come in”.

The three conferences will start at 6.00pm in the Sala d'Actes, next to the Sant Francesc library.

-Tuesday March 26: Manel Güell Barceló. Communicating assertively: emotionally intelligent communication.

-Monday April 15: Betlem Gomila Serra. The other side of sport: transmitting values.

-Thursday May 2: Pepa Horno Goicoechea. Learn to love. Learn to trust.
