Our training programmes

Over the past years, we have run over 100 training programmes to train staff from Romanian institutions and other charities in our methods.

We have been very fortunate in the specialist practitioners from the following organizations who have helped in our own training and in contributing to our training courses:

Action Space Mobile

Muzika Charitable Trust

Music as Therapy

If you would like to find out more about our training programmes and our training schedule in Romania, please contact us.


We feel this model could be very useful in other former communist Eastern European countries where there are similar problem of basic lack of care, stimulation and neglect in adult and childrens institutions.

We invite enquiries from anyone about how we could help Impart the model into other countries.

Training Manual

manual cover 1
manual cover 2

We have published a step-by-step practical guide to introducing music, art, movement and play programmes into institutions.

It is an attempt to define what we believe to be a highly appropriate model for intervention.

The manual also explores the background of institutionalization in Romania, the human rights issues and much more.

If you would like a copy, please contact us. It is available in Romanian and English.

The Romanian version is free to Romanian applicants.

Copies may also be given for no charge to enquirers from other countries who are interested in developing this work in their countries

The English version costs £10 + postage
