1 OBUCHENIYA 12.07.2016Training of workers from places of imprisonment under Specialized Programme for Resocialization of Imprisoned People with Low Intellectual Capacity was held at hotel “Philadelphia” in the period 19th-26th June.

Twenty workers from the prisons in Varna, Sliven, Stara Zagora, Plovdiv, Sofia, Belene, Lovech, Vratsa, Pazardzhik, Burgas, Bobov Dol, and Reformatory School “Boytchinovtsi” took part in the training.

The actual trainers were five of the people who had already been trained during the first training under the project. There were also three expert-trainers who were only supporting the main trainers.

The main topics discussed the characteristics of people with low intellectual capacity in various aspects. Both the individual and the group work with people with low intellectual capacity were presented and special attention was paid on the issues accompanying conflict resolution.

During the training there was an individual supervision with the trainees as well as a supervision with the prison workers who are going to apply the specialized programme for resocialization of imprisoned people with low intellectual capacity.

In order to improve the final result of the training there were two experts assessing efficiency whose role was to gather and discuss feedback from the trainees in relation to the developed educational programmes.

The Project has been funded by the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2009-2014 under Programme BG15 “Corrective Services Including Non-Custodial Sanctions”.
