We organise peer groups in various languages for youth and parents. In the youth groups we discuss and do activities pertaining to adolescence.
In the mother and father groups we support parenting in Finland, as well as reflect on parenting and its challenges in the new environment. The group is led by a Sopu worker and a trained native speaker.
An individual meeting can be arranged, in case a topic arises during a group discussion, which would be wise to manage with a Sopu-worker confidentially. At the individual meeting we discuss the expectations of the individual, assess his or her situation and if needed guide the client to other services. Sopu-worker walks through the process together with the client. If the client wishes, a trained native speaker can function as an interpreter and support the client during the individual meetings. Girls, boys, mothers and fathers are all welcome to the individual meetings.
