Our Mission

RiO Vibe Centrum helps children from Polish orphanages and war refugees from Ukraine free of charge in the field of: psychological support, social skills training and psychoeducational workshops.

RiO Vibe Centrum is our response to what is currently happening in Poland in the context of the lack of therapeutic and psychological assistance for refugees from Ukraine and children and youth from Polish orphanages!
RiO Vibe Centrum is part of the RiO Edu Centrum, a day-long support and education center that assists mothers from Ukraine in vocational activation and provides educational support to their children. In order to meet the visible needs, we have launched the RiO Vibe Center aimed at helping children and young people in the field of psychological support, psychoeducation, as well as motor and social development.

Our staff is a qualified team of trainers, therapists and psychologists.

We know how important mental health is in the context of current events in the world, and so we help those who need it most and have difficult access to psychologists and therapists.

Who do we help?

The activities of RiO Vibe Centrum will focus on long-term psychological support and psychoeducation.

Dependents of Polish orphanages

Individual psychological support for children and adolescents

RiO Vibe Center psychologists specialize in providing support for individuals facing emotional crises, neurotic or depressive symptoms, a sense of lack of meaning and purpose in life, grief following the loss of loved ones (such as separation or bereavement), trauma, and symptoms associated with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

 

Each session is conducted with strict confidentiality, and our team of passionate psychologists and psychotherapists has extensive experience, working under constant supervision.

Social Skills Training

TUS, or social skills training offered by RiO Vibe Center psychologists, is a group activity designed to help children and adolescents develop essential social skills, with a particular focus on communication.

 

The training is conducted in small groups, ensuring participants are in a similar age range.

 

During TUS sessions, children practice various skills aimed at enhancing their social interactions. These include identifying and managing difficult emotions such as anger, frustration, fear, and insecurity. Additionally, participants learn about setting and respecting personal boundaries, assertiveness, joining conversations, asking questions, active listening, giving and receiving compliments, expressing and responding to criticism and hate, and engaging in respectful discussions while respecting others’ boundaries.

Sensory Integration Activities

Sensory integration is a vital process that takes place within the nervous system, involving the reception and organization of stimuli received through the senses. At the RIO Vibe Center, our sensory integration classes aim to address and overcome challenges related to balance disorders, eye-hand coordination difficulties, hyperactivity or avoidance of movement, as well as issues with reduced or increased muscle tension.
