Polish as a foreign language courses
We organize a two-week course for teachers that consists of 20 hours of lectures and 20 hours of workshops and consultations, including a course of conducting a series of breathing exercises that improve concentration, reduce stress, and support building mental resilience. The methodological course aims to present the basics of working with foreigners, in particular working with children and students from Slavic countries. The course will include a presentation of methods used in foreign language learning, teaching techniques for specific language skills, teaching materials, as well as techniques of motivating and assessing. The emotional regulation component will provide teachers with tools to support the functioning of refugee children in a new environment and exceptionally difficult life circumstances.

Mental Health and Psycho-Social Support
SOK Foundation’s program is preparing social workers, schools counselors and teachers to lead an 8 week long support group program for children. Psychosocial care and support is about helping children, families and communities to improve their psychosocial well- being. It is about encouraging better relationships between people, and building a stronger sense of self and community. It is expressed through caring and respectful relationships that communicate understanding, tolerance and acceptance. It is about promoting everyday consistent care and support in the family, school and community.
