Who we are
With the fundamental purpose of “educating for prevention in childhood and adolescence”, we created in 2011, in Paris, our Institution: The MONICA TOSCANO PREVENTION IN ACT® International School, with the aim of establishing an international network prevention of bullying or bullying.
It is constituted as an interdisciplinary institution, at the initiative of Monica Toscano, graduated in psychology, specialist in psychoanalysis and creator of the MONICA TOSCANO PREVENTION IN ACT® Method. Under her direction and supervision, a group of professionals from different areas works with the purpose of investigating and analyzing a daily scourge such as violence in adolescents, with a view to finding ways to prevent it.
Said research and instrumentation has begun to be developed in April 2000, through workshops, seminars and training courses for directors, teachers, parents and students in different educational institutions in Buenos Aires.
In Barcelona the method is implemented with children, puberty and adolescents in different educational institutions. Directors, teachers and educators are trained and supervised for the application of this method, providing answers to questions such as what to do and how to act in the face of bullying. The training courses have been recognized by the Department of Education of the Generalitat de Catalunya.
As of 2008, prevention tools of the Monica Toscano Prevention in Act method and the results of her research work with children and adolescents have been transmitted to directors, teachers and educators in Paris, among others, within the framework of the Rectorate of the Academy of Paris .
In 2011, this research work was extended to educational institutions in Düsserldorf- Germany.
From here, then, we undertake together the task of a true awareness on the path of preventing bullying, thus trying to create a national and international support network for children and adolescents.
