Methodological support

Eclectica’s enterprising spirit ensures a client- and results-oriented approach. For each client, we set up an ad hoc work group to deal with the specific goals and make the most of the individual skills that the client’s staff can offer. When necessary, we also draw on the multidisciplinary talents of our professional associates.

We can thus support public agencies or private organizations in one or all stages of a process: determining needs, project design, implementing measures, creating teaching and communication materials, monitoring, and assessing results.

Our consulting services aim to transmit the skills and methods our clients need to be as independent as possible.

Over the last ten years, Eclectica has specialized in providing guidance and backup for participatory processes in a range of areas and sectors (prevention, social inclusion, health policies and many more).

Focus areas:

  • Participatory planning (Health Plans and Profiles, Regional Mental Health Plan)
  • Risk prevention (traffic accidents, nightlife)
  • Adolescence
  • Active ageing
  • Social inclusion
  • Mental health
  • Social withdrawal (hikikomori)
