Training

For over 20 years, we have designed educational programs about well-being promotion, healthy lifestyles and prevention of high-risk behaviors for healthcare workers, educators, social workers, psychologies and physicians, and well as for anyone involved in educating or looking after others as teachers, parents, or caregivers.

All of our educational programs are developed together with our clients and tailored to their targets and project goals. In conducting our training sessions, we use active learning methods based on working in small groups, direct involvement of all participants, and leveraging their prior experience and skills.

We dedicate the utmost attention to working together with the client to determine each educational program’s goals and acquiring the tools and knowledge that can be put to concrete use in program attendees’ everyday life at the workplace and elsewhere. Upon completion, each program’s outcomes are assessed using methods appropriate to its goals.

Thanks to a longstanding network of professional associates, we can offer a full training service which in addition to teaching includes analyzing needs, developing course content, preparing print and audiovisual teaching materials, and handling all organizational and logistic aspects.

Focus areas:

  • Relational aspects: parenting, team building, caregiving …
  • Preventing high-risk behaviors among adolescents: alcohol and substance abuse, media, bullying, social withdrawal, sexuality, life skills…
  • Promoting active ageing
  • Promoting active organizations
  • Effective communication: conflict management, emotional training …
  • Teaching methods and tools (peer education, media education…)
  • Participatory methods (world cafè, nominal group, process…)

EMDAS European Masters on Drug and Alcohol

Born in 2010, the European Master is promoted by the University of Turin, the Miguel Hernandez de Elche University (Alicante, Spain), the University of Aarhus (Denmark) and the Middlesex University (London, Great Britain). The master addresses the issues of the use of legal and illegal psychoactive substances, addiction to substances and new forms of addiction in a multidisciplinary and international perspective, through the critical examination of scientific evidence and their relevance in different political, social economic, and cultural contexts. It is addressed to all graduates (three-year and master’s degree), in particular to researchers and operators of public and private bodies working in the field of prevention and treatment of addictions and to those who are engaged in the definition of prevention and organization policies for services.

Franca Beccaria is one of the creators and founders and vice director of the Masters. The management of the Master is entrusted to Eclectica through an agreement with the Department of Culture, politics and society of the University of Turin.
