Stowarzyszenie Aslan (The Aslan Association) is a non-governmental organization operating in Warsaw.
It was established by professionals (psychologists and pedagogues) and young people who had undergone their own therapy and training preparing them for providing help to others.
The Association's goal is initiating and organising activities supporting intellectual, emotional and social development and mental health of children and young people, as well as supporting their parents.
We offer special assistance to children and young people from dysfunctional families in order to eliminate effects of their growing up in an unfavourable environment and to create proposals for their healthy and creative lives.
We pursue those goals through the following forms of activity:
- Individual psychological and pedagogical care for young people;
- Therapy groups for young people;
- Sociotherapy groups for children;
- Therapeutical and educational activities for children;
- Consultations and assistance to parents;
- Family therapy;
- Tehrapy for people with eating disorders (like anorexia nervosa or buklimia nervosa);
- Self-help activities, including support groups run by youth leaders;
- A package of recreational and interest developing activities (e.g.: learning to play the guitar and drums, film group, cooking classes, fitness club, Tai Chi, etc.);
- Assistance in learning (volunteers);
- Educational and training workshops;
- Weekend and holiday workshops and therapy camps;
- Assistance in preparation for a self-dependent life (completion of school education, finding a job).
The Association also has a hostel for young people - victims of the domestic violence - at the Family Assistance Centre - "Against Violence - To Equalize Opportunities".
The programme for children and young people is carried out at the Association's community centre at 17 Nowolipie St. by professionals (psychologists and pedagogues), as well as volunteers and youth leaders .
The community centre is open 6 days a week (if necessary, 7 days) between 9.00 a.m. and 8.00 p.m . Age of participants: 7 - 26 years.
