Within the Youth Counseling Center for 1st grade, a creative workshop "Body Awareness" was held, led by the head of the counseling center Linda Bakotić.

The aim of the workshop is to raise awareness and listen to your body how to respect it and be gentle to it. Full awareness of your thoughts, feelings, needs, desires and actions, as well as awareness of how they occur in particular situations, is contact with yourself. The body and psyche are an inseparable whole that makes up our personality, our being and we function best when we react with the whole being. Many of us do not experience our body as part of one whole. Every psychic process is accompanied by a bodily process, which we are not always aware of, and only when pain occurs do we become aware of an organ, part of the body or bodily process. Physical disturbances and illness occur when there is physical repression, which is manifested by tension and convulsions. Through designed activities, students will practice how they can hear and care, and listen to their body.
