The social education programme “Educar en Familia” continues in 2018
The Adeje council and the regional department of education, in collaboration with the regional federation of parents associations (FITAPA) and the Tenerife Cabildo, have announced details of this year’s social education programme “Educar en Familia” (education within the family). The aims of the programme are to provide a space where the families with school-going children are able to explore social themes and also arm themselves with the tools and strategies they may need to resolve conflict within the family.
This training programme is structured through two-hour workshops with different themes looking at the practical and participative themes for families. In Adeje there will be ten such workshops during February, March, April and May, all taking place in the Adeje cultural centre.
Education councillor Adolfo Alonso Ferrera says this is a huge help for parents since its inception a number of years ago, with excellent results. “The course contents have been specialised to deal with certain themes of major interest, such as bullying, drug dependency, how the adolescent brain operates, sexual adolescence, diversity, family harmony, sport and emotional education, prevention of gender violence, etc. “
The first session for parents is on February 20th at 6pm, dealing with bullying, and the talk will be given by sociologist, Patricia G Ojeda. All the talks and workshops are in Spanish. Although the workshops are free, you will need to register to take part as places are limited. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information is also available on the council webpage www.adeje.es. During the hours of the workshops care for under 3s is also provided.
