ICDP’s partner in South Africa is the Ubulele Educational and Psychotherapy Trust, a non-profit organizaion in Johannesburg (https://ububele.org/about-us/), that provides therapeutic services to families and children in impoverished communities. The ICDP programme was well received by the Ububele organization in 2019, and after the training of trainers was completed they integrated the ICDP programme as one of their activities aimed at strengthening child and family mental health in the township of Alexandra.
ICDP trainer at Ubulele, Nicky Dawson, reports:
“In early September 2022 a new group received their ICDP certificates (on photo above) after attending the workshops. This training was carried out by facilitators from Ubulele. The implementation of the ICDP programme is helping create positive changes and thus it is extending our support to families and contributing to Ubulele’s own efforts of improving the lives of families in Alexandra”.
