Is it worth promoting social and emotional skills in childhood and, if so, what can it look like? These questions were recently raised by numerous specialists and teachers from kindergartens, primary schools and health care at a technical conference in Kreishaus at the invitation of the Regional Education Office of Olpe County. With Prof. Dr Ute Koglin, a proven expert and developer of a behavioural training course in kindergarten, discussed forms and methods of targeted behavioural development. The fact that this is now proves how necessary this is. 20 per cent of all children show abnormalities in social behaviour.

On the basis of numerous studies, the speaker was able to demonstrate impressively the effect of the targeted promotion of children at all ages and how important it is for their healthy development.   Several workshops then addressed practical problems from everyday life: Which tools are available to meet the challenges of learning together, especially against the background of the immigration of children from different different levels. Countries? How can a continuous promotion of social skills be implemented under the changed conditions? Experts from the Bremen Institute of Education and Psychology provided valuable suggestions and practical tips. In a final panel discussion, the results of all workshops were again under the question: How can behavioural support in the context of inclusion and integration succeed? Controversial. Quote from one participant: “I take many new impulses and insights into my day-to-day work.” Olpe County has been passionate about the continuous promotion of the social and emotional skills of children and adolescents for ten years. For example, targeted training courses for professionals and teachers from kindergartens and primary schools are held annually, organised by the Regional Education Office and funded by the four Lions Club in Olpe County. At the conference, it was confirmed once again that this is a correct and necessary way forward, because “day care facilities and schools are increasingly taking on educational tasks, which were, of course, carried out in the family in the past,” says Susanne Spornhauer, Head of the Regional Education Network in Olpe County.
