Where I stayed
La casa de mayten
that I'm already enjoying it and do not regret it at all. This weekend
I pretty much did a lot of playing with kids as well as a bit of
research into selfesteem and antiviolence programs. (btw psychologists
- any info you can provide will be much appreciated) the house I'm
staying at is pretty much the only community center fir the
neighborhood or for the city for that matter. Since the earthquake in
2007 hope for the future has been at a low and priorities changed
quicker at taking the easy (but maladaptive) way out.
That's where I'm coming in. I'll be doing lots of consultations to
staff and teachers at schools and shelters on how to help kids raise
self esteem and find appropriate solutions to difficult situations.
I'll also help out with any questions related to psychology as well.
I won't be around when the project officially launches (as it got
delayed one week), but i've been told that so many people that work
with kids have so many questions on how they can do their job and
they've been waiting for forever to speak to a psychologist. So I have
my docket so full for my short time here.
Seems like there's so much that this project has on it's hands but any
small difference it can make may eventually trickle into their culture
here and change things in generations to come.
Tomorrow will be my first meeting and it's with a shelter for sexually
abused girls. Let's see how this goes.
