A group of parents and caregivers have started to attend an ICDP course in Germany as planned.
On Saturday 13th of January 2018, an ICDP meeting for caregivers was held in the city of Hameln. Participants included two mothers and four professionals (three caregivers of special needs children and one childminder). It was the start of the first ICDP course to ever take place in Germany.
“We had a wonderful meeting, in which we successfully engaged in building shared awareness, bonding and created the ground for sharing and future ICDP work together. I am very happy to finally get started with ICDP and this group! Some institutions, I got in contact with, are also interested in the ICDP programme and my plan is to offer ICDP training to different groups later on, i.e. parents of autistic children, education of childminders, and caretakers of older people.” – said Rita Crecelius (on photo above), the ICDP facilitator in charge of the course in Hameln.
