Expectations from the course

by Christina Vallianatou

I have worked with young people in clinical and non-clinical settings in London and Athens and I was looking for a course in youth studies for quite some time. This course appealed to me because of its multicultural element. I have done other training courses since I qualified as a chartered counselling psychologist in 2000 and I hope to integrate the new knowledge and build on my existing skills. Being a psychologist I often focus too much on what’s going on on a ┬ápersonal level and I hope that this course would give me the opportunity to understand the social and other aspects in youth work. On a personal level I hope to meet new people from all over Europe and exchange ideas, thoughts and experiences. Finally there is a part of me that is excited about the unknown and so I am looking forward to seeing where this course is going to take me :)
