About the event

The objective of this workshop is to provide targeted support for immigrant teenagers grappling with emotional distress and psychosocial hurdles during the acculturation process. Its primary focus revolves around identifying and mitigating negative psychological and behavioural repercussions stemming from the myriad conflicts and stressors encountered while adapting to a new sociocultural context. Central to the workshop’s mission is the establishment of a safe, non-judgmental space wherein immigrant adolescents can openly articulate and process their suppressed emotions. This therapeutic framework aims to facilitate their seamless integration into the local community while concurrently addressing emotional conflicts inherent in the acculturation journey. By nurturing a sense of belonging and resilience, the workshop endeavours to equip these individuals with the necessary psychological tools to navigate and overcome the challenges inherent in their cultural transition.
