Like last year, IPL schools wanted to offer staff training in “Raising awareness of students’ psychological distress”.
The training objectives were :
• Identify the various forms of distress experienced by students in schools with demanding curricula.
• Acquire common theoretical reference points for discussing age-specific psychological distress: from the normal to the pathological.
• Understand key points when dealing with students in difficulty.
• Consider the various solutions currently available and their relevance to specific situations.
30 employees from the 4 schools met on June 5th at ISARA and on June 13th at CPE to discuss this priority issue for the schools.
