BI does Persona Dolls
The BI has good working relationships with other organisations around the Elliotdale area. We are always looking for ways in which to share skills that we have acquired. In October last year we had the opportunity to share our Persona Doll skills with practitioners from the Jabulani Foundation and Philani.
The training was conducted at the Philani offices in Zithulele. We trained 22 delegates who were very keen to learn. It was also wonderful to have a male delegate who was obviously passionate about working with children and displayed strong fatherly characteristics during the training sessions – a rare find in a sector dominated by female practitioners.
Persona Dolls are an effective Early Learning teaching method for approaching issues including diversity, discrimination, discipline, relationships, inter-personal issues, learning difficulties with children. See www.pdt.org.za.
