October 10, 2019 - Peru
NPH Peru is always happy when the family grows. In September, the Casa Santa Rosa home received a visit from Expresarte, a team focused on socio-emotional development through Expressive Arts.
The Expresarte team is made up of the psychologist, María Belén Mayca Martínez, and therapist, Ada Ivonne Lazarte Arias, who on their first visit came to evaluate and diagnose what programs and projects they could support at NPH Peru. After a meeting with the National Directors and the House Director at Casa Santa Rosa, they defined the different ways in which they could develop workshops with the adolescents, older children and the tutors.
Ivonne Lazarte and Belén Mayca have many years of experience working in the educational field; their goal being to accompany and guide tutors in different houses that support children and adolescents how to develop activities in expressive arts that children to recognize their creative resources to face different situations assertively.
During the workshops, the tutors will learn how to teach playful and group methodology, how to develop a space for reflection and an experience from the art that allows sensitization. The objective is to always establish a diagnosis of behavior and ways of relating between both groups of tutors.
In NPH Peru is very grateful to have the opportunity to work with the Expresarte team, since it always ensures a better working environment for tutors and thus achieve the best environment for our children.
