Elise Griede, War Child methodology specialist


Elise Griede, War Child methodology specialist Elise Griede, War Child methodology specialist develops, together with the War Child field staff, special programmes for children in the age from 11 till 15. She tells: “With our programme called I DEAL children are made aware of their different emotions, expressive and empathic capacities.

All sessions have different theme’s like “What are feelings?”, “How do I deal with quarrels with peers?” or “What do I want to do in the future?” This thematic approach gives children and their parents something to hold on to. 12 year old Vicky who took part in the I DEAL sessions told me how she experienced slowly changing: “Before the War Child programme, I was not very good in school. Now my marks are much better. At home things are improving too. Often I had fights with my brothers, but now I have learned how to deal with others and how I can control my emotions. I get along better and better with my brothers.”
