In-house training

In cooperation with our partner SEGEMI – Seelische Gesundheit – Migration und Flucht e.V., we offer 4-hour in-house trainings on five topics.

For a 4-hour seminar (incl. travel to and from the seminar as well as all seminar materials and seminar documents), a total fee of € 150.00 will be charged. If this fee is not within your means, please do not hesitate to contact us.

All our in-house training offers can currently only be booked as online seminars. We use Zoom for our training offers. If you do not wish to use Zoom, you are very welcome to send us a corresponding link from your provider in advance.
