Emotions:

EMOTION – Tools for Effective Management of Emotions for the Baltic-Nordic Consortium of Adult Trainers

NORDPLUS ADULT Project No.: NPAD-2017/10076

Project duration: 06 2017 – 05 2019

The aim of the project is to carry out a joint development work within the consortium and to create the Handbook with tools for adult educators working with social risk families, abusers, asylum seekers, NEETs and other disadvantaged groups on Emotional Management.

The 95 % of the people with whom the staff of VšĮ Žmogiškųjų išteklių stebėsenos ir plėtros biuras has worked in their interventions, trainings (implementing violence reduction programme, training on self-help methods) have expressed their problems being related to the inability to express emotions, anger in a proper way thus resulting in arguments, outbursts of abuse, violence, bullying or depression as a consequence, etc. The fact is that since the very childhood in the process of socialization people are usually taught to suppress emotions and this affects deeply their welfare, quality of life, relations, behaviour.

In order to meet the detected needs, the following goals are established:

  1. Prepare the Emotional Management tools for adult educators (Handbook).
  2. To raise awareness among adult educators on the relevance of Emotional Management (Conference).

In order to reach the goals of the project 5 international meetings will be organised each of them being devoted for the creation of separate sections of the Handbook which will be later presented during the conference in Denmark in April 2019.

Te(a)chIN Sport

Web

The “Te(a)chIn Sport” general project objective is to raise awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA) of students and young people through increased participation in sports using innovative technologies and promote voluntary activities in University sport. The project target groups are the University students, young people, teachers, trainers and academic stuff.

The project envisages the use of latest sports technology (Intelligent feedback devices/IFD/) together with promotion of EU traditional values and principles in sports as main instruments in developing the Universities sports activities. Armed with a better sense of the student journey the Universities and NGOs will design the new “development strand” to support the students’ and young people transition through higher education to their healthy and successful future life.

The project will conduct questionnaires to prepare for experiments, and then conduct experiments on groups of students with the IFD devices. Along the academic study, 5 international workshops and seminars will be hosted in the 5 partner countries.
