ABOUT THE TRAINER

Marta Sadowska – There are lots of wonderful job experiences that has led me to become a positive psychologist. Most of them are connected to suporting children’s and teenagers’ development but also facilitating and training groups of teachers and educators who are willing to be more aware of their mission and who are eager to learn how to use innovative and interesting tools in their work.
Thanks to my different job experiences – as psychologist, trainer, tutor and counselor in community day care center – I have realised how much I enjoy to support other people’s development and how effective it is to base on character strenghts, virtues and talents.
What helps me the most, and what is my greatest motivation at once, is persistent curiosity about the world and other people.
projects nowadays is bringing a positive change to several schools in Gdańsk by diagnosing the needs of students, teachers and parents, and undertaking specific actions to create a beneficial environment for all of them.
