Lithuania, December 2016


We are spreading our wings! The first unique and innovative training program on the E.C.C. – Emotional Cognitive Coaching method, for educators, psychologists, education counselors and social workers, in cooperation with the ministry of education and science of Lithuania, took place in Vilnius from December 12, 2016 – December 23, 2016.
The cooperation with the Lithuanian ministry of education and science was initiated by Israel’s ambassador to Lithuania, Mr. Amir Maimon who recognizes the importance of sharing knowledge on issues such as education and innovative practices in education and on issues affecting education.

The training program was led by Dr. Maly Danino, CEO of Nitzan-Israel, who developed the method and was accompanied by Anat Katznelson the psychologist in residence at nitzan and the director of the coaching program in Israel in giving the lectures and workshops.

Dr. Danino wrote the book The Parent as a Coach-a journey of a parent of a child with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder in 2007. Following the publishing of this book, Dr. Danino developed two intervention programs for parents: a support group called: The Journey from Support to Advocacy and the E.C.C. process: Coaching for Individuals or Couples. In 2011 Dr. Danino published the book Coach Your Child to Success which serves as a text book for professionals at Nitzan’s unique coaching program. This book was translated to English in 2012 and to Lithuanian in 2016 and served as a text book in this first training program in Lithuania.

Following the agreement with the Lithuanian ministry of education and science, a selected group of graduates from this training seminar will after a period of practice and supervision be in charge of implementing the method within the Lithuanian education system.

A 10 days seminar for senior professionals from the fields of education and psychology opened in Vilnius on December 12 2016. This seminar continued the cooperation between Nitzan and the Lithuanian Ministry of Education and science, initiated by Mr. Amir Maimon, Israel’s ambassador to Lithuania.
