Activate the Survival & Thriving Net with Sociodrama!
After months of rambling, research, travels, despair and big spendings, a mother finds out her son has Dravet epilepsy. After almost one year since the diagnostic, she finds her way to support her child and keep him alive. She gathered other parents, then they asked for help. Working with over 10 types of specialists, using sociodrama, we could help other parents with creating support networks and two guides: one for the journey prior to the diagnostics and one for the journey with diagnostics. Starting that day, the Dravet Association had strategic allies in their work. They even changed a law in Romania. The older children outlived the life expectancy for this condition. They are fighters and they are not alone.
Support networks are key for survival, development, wellness and thriving. We can help their creation on one hand and we can enable persons and groups to devise and activate their support groups on the other hand, with sociodrama.
We all need a survival & thriving net, don’t we?
