IENE 8 – Empowering migrant and refugee families with parenting skills
The overall goal of the project is to create an on line curriculum, including learning tool/guide for health professionals and volunteers to enable them to provide support and knowledge and skills on parenting and child-family health care needs under unique and difficult conditions. The project will also develop an on line bite-size learning for parents; and will select stories from parents on parenting that will be introduce in the existing Khub of IENE projects (http://www.ienerefugeehub.eu/ ). This will enrich and update the materials and tools at the khub. The project fosters interdisciplinary and transnational synergies among different institutions and individuals with research and innovation activities. Further, the project enhances the development of intercultural competences in professionals and volunteers, involving academics, educators and civic society, all of which will contribute to the development and implementation of all activities of this project. The project emphasizes the use of an open, innovative learning tool, based on the principles of peer learning and support, co-creation and effective utilization. The project is in line with the European Commission’s policy «A European agenda on migration».
The new curriculum, bite-size learning tools hold a promise to form as a paradigm and a good practice for effective use of technologies and pedagogies in training health professionals and volunteers in the vital issues of migration, integration and healthy community, regarding parenting skills and psychological support of migrant and refugee families with children.
