On August 31st, the groundbreaking COPE project took centre stage at the XVII Congreso Internacional Psicopedagogía Galego-Portugués (XVII International Galician-Portuguese Psychopedagogy Congress) in Coruña, Spain. The event featured a plenary session dedicated to the presentation of research projects, and COPE was prominently showcased. The participants at the congress lauded the COPE project for its exceptional social relevance.
What sets COPE apart is its pioneering methodology, firmly rooted in the principles of Social Prescription. This approach recognizes that young people facing social, emotional, or psychological challenges can benefit greatly from targeted non-medical interventions that address their specific needs. Through COPE, these individuals can access a range of services and resources tailored to their unique circumstances.
The project’s presentation generated significant interest and discussions among the attendees, who recognized its potential to substantially impact the lives of vulnerable youth.
As the COPE project continues to evolve and broaden its scope, it holds the potential to bring about a positive transformation in the lives of young individuals who might otherwise have encountered formidable obstacles on their path to success. Its acknowledgment at the XVII Congreso Internacional Psicopedagogía Galego-Portugués stands as a clear testament to the project’s unwavering commitment to enhancing the well-being and growth of the youth it strives to assist.
