Our successful Ipso trainings enter a new round: This fall we are offering Value Based Counseling (VBC) trainings for people interested in culturally sensitive, native-language psychosocial counseling, thus giving them an exciting job perspective.

Our trainings in Berlin are aimed at multilingual psychologists and psychotherapists and in particular people with a migrant background who have studied psychology or were social workers in their home country.

Please find detailed information and the possibility to apply for our trainings here.

In our previous courses in Germany, we have already trained 92 participants with a refugee or migration background as psychosocial counselors. Forty-two of them are counseling people in need of psychosocial support in our centers in Berlin, Hamburg and Erfurt and via our secure video platform https://www.ipso-care.com, currently in 15 languages. Other counselors trained by Ipso are working for other institutions or were able to start studying after their training.

Our joint project with Malteser Hilfswerke in Rostock was featured by the German TV channel NDR!

We currently train 20 participants from 11 different nationalities to become psychosocial counsellors. After the training they will support people in refugee accomodations in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Germany).

Christmas is the time of giving presents to each other. But a gift does not have to be material. It can be caring for each other – giving time, kindness or encouragement for someone around you.

Hereby we would like to say “Thank You” to everyone who gave us their trust and inspiration in the past year and came to see us in a counseling session.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
