Workshops & Training
Since its inception, the Adonis Musati Project has been involved in a number of initiatives and activities to assist the vulnerable asylum seeker and refugee population in Cape Town, including health and welfare, training, education, advocacy, and psychosocial and mental health care. AMP believes in taking a holistic approach to offering assistance, addressing both the physical and mental needs of our clients. We strive to address the gap of access and availability in services for this population, whilst encouraging individual sustained growth and eventual self-reliance.
Vicarious Trauma and Self-Care Workshops
At AMP, we understand first-hand the effects of Vicarious Trauma and have developed a series of workshops that look at Vicarious Trauma, Resilience and Self-Care. We offer these workshops several times a year to other service providers working with marginalised refugees and migrants, in order to foster and develop a community of care between those working on the frontlines with trauma and stress. Contact us for more details or to book a workshop.
Mental Health Workshops
AMP has many years of experience counselling refugees and asylum seekers and is familiar with the mental health issues that are most common in this community. We are also aware of the stigma surrounding certain mental illnesses and offer educational and experiential Mental Health and Refugees Workshops on request, to refugees and migrants at other Cape Town service providers.
Lay Counsellor & Peer Counsellor Training
Since 2013, AMP has trained 16 peer counsellors, many of whom are still leading our Peer Support Programmes.
We also offer both Lay Counsellor Training & Peer Counsellor Training, designed for other service providers working with refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. These trainings are offered yearly. Contact us for more details.
