Healing Japan Project

[English Follows] JISPのヒーリングジャパン・プロジェクトでは、大滝涼子氏を講師に迎え、東北支援におけるコミュニケーション向上の研修を行いました。


Dr. Ryoko Ohtaki gave a training about enhancing communication skills for disaster supporters in the Tohoku region. The participants were from “Izumi”, an organization that since 2013 offers thyroid gland check-ups for kids in Fukushima and Miyagi Prefectures. We used role-playing to simulate the checkups, and participants learned about ways to deal with the stress of the kids, their guardians as well as their own.

“I learned how to put myself in another person’s shoes” commented one of the participants.

At the end of the workshop, we held a short yoga session – to emphasize that above all, it is the care for the supporters themselves which is crucial to their work.
