In-house training

In cooperation with our partner SEGEMI – Seelische Gesundheit – Migration und Flucht e.V., we offer in-house training on various topics.

The content of the training can be dream-specific topics or general questions about working with refugees. We are also happy to design training based on your cases. We will then try to develop an appropriate concept and, if necessary, recruit additional speakers from our network.

All offers are available to you free of charge. Please use the contact form at the bottom of this page to register. For further planning, we will contact you as soon as possible.
