Partner With MiA
In addition to our online course, MiA- Mindfulness in Arabic partners with refugee centers, humanitarian NGOs, social workers, aid counselors and academic researchers in Europe, Turkey and the Middle-East.
We offer specific and unique expertise in Trauma-Informed, Culturally-Sensitive Mindfulness from Mindfulness and Trauma experts and native Arabic Mindfulness practitioners from the Middle East.
MiA offers professional support and training to refugee aid workers and humanitarian counselors, in Trauma & Resiliency skills. We offer group workshops ranging from 2-6 days which include hands-on learning the nature of Trauma (its effect on the mind-body, brain and nervous system, behavior), followed by Trauma & Resiliency skills including Somatic Experiencing, CRM, Trauma -Sensitive Mindfulness, as well as the specifics of working with refugees and in cross-cultural settings.
We also offer the opportunity to partner with us on our Pilot Program. Our Pilot-Program is designed to introduce our 8-week online course to groups of Refugees with additional in-person support. The program is designed to accompany refugees through their progress, and also provides MiA with the opportunity to expand on academic research on the effectiveness of our course. The Pilot Program is based in our 8-week online course and features 2 weekends (beginning and end) of in-person facilitation, along with virtual support meetings for the 6 week interim duration of the course. Counselors and center teachers have found this very helpful in regards to their ability to further implement and follow the course.
Private supervision, virtually or in-person, for humanitarian aid workers and professional therapists can be arranged as well.
We are also open to learn from you! If you have created Mindfulness, Yoga or other mind-body curriculums in Arabic, especially for refugee populations, or Trauma-informed, we would love to hear from you and explore avenues, if fitting, to incorporate new materials into our programs.
Get in touch with us at Info@mindfulnessinarabic.org to inquire about partnering with us!
We look forward to hearing from you.
