Training in Greece about street work

After the Greek translation of the toolkit “On the street: A practical guide for new social street workers” two Greek NGOs named ARSIS and EMFASIS organized and implemented two two-days seminars in Thessaloniki and Athens on 3-4 & 6-7 of November. The seminars were supported by the Municipalities of both cities. The training was implemented by the writers of the toolkit, Don Irving and Simon Whitmore, as well as by Valbona Hystuna, experienced street worker of ARSIS. Some of the issues were: the methodology of sw, the psychological context in which a social street worker works on the street, the necessary limitations of practical work as well as the ethical dilemmas surrounding the profession.

A short presentation of the toolkit took place in Athens on November 5 too.
