Feedback

 

Trainees were very motivated and active. They participated eagerly and at the same time identified their strengths and weaknesses a lot. Sometimes they expressed rigidity during the exercises and hardly perceived new approaches. Some of them mentioned that they participated in this kind of social-psychological training for the first time.

They underlined that the training was interesting and helpful.
