This training course aimed to provide tools for youth workers, community workers, youth leaders, social activists to prevent professional burnout, at the same time, learning on their own example how to use the experienced methods to work with target groups with similar feelings of helplessness and vulnerability. Participants were introduced to applied drama and philosophy as methodologies bringing people closer to their inner core and authentic presence in the world, at the same time reinforcing their curiosity about the world and people, which are important factors in preventing professional burnout. They explored different philosophical approaches and own attitudes towards their work, and practised critical thinking, which stands against radical ideologies, oppressive systems, as well as empathy, which stands against violence.
