From 23 February to 26 February 2015 in the Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA the Fourth Training Module for associate experts on youth work was held. Young people from thirteen youth organisations, associations and centres from eight local communities in Bosnia and Herzegovina attended the fourth module.
The topics of the fourth module were social competences and organisational skills.
During the first two days of the module, as a part of the topic of social competences the attendees had an opportunity to acquire knowledge from the trainer, a graduated psychologist and Gestalt psychotherapist Senka ?impo, regarding the topics: what social competences are, recognising and accepting one’s own needs as well as the needs of others, solving conflicts non-violently, compromise, inclusion and gender equality that connotates equal opportunities for women, men and trans-gender persons.
The attendees learned through interesting exercises and workshops that social competences develop through social interaction, i.e. relationships with other people but that they also relate to the attitude towards oneself and one’s own feelings and the attitude towards others and their own feelings and needs.
In the continuation of the module, as a part of the topic of organisational skills, trainer Jasmin BeĹˇi? presented the attendees with the basics of strategic and operational planning, organisational management, resource mobilisation, donor mapping as well as working with volunteers.
