#var:page_name# cover

Vortrag von Prof. Vamik D. Volkan /USA
Prof. Volkan shares his vast experiences from participation in projects designed to help children and young people traumatized by war and other social conflicts develop positive identity and overcome (personal) crises, he will present theoretical models and principles helpful for the re-integration of young people into larger groups /communities. From his presentations, we hope to learn about the psychological foundations of identity (theory), how it influences children and young people in our programmes and how we can utilise these insights to provide care situations that allow for the formation of positive identities.
