Personal Statement about Training Program:
actually i learned focusing since 2002 and after that i used to do focusing when i am facing some hard times in my workplace or at home which give me calmness and i feel better with it and as well as i teach focusing in my psychosocial well-being workshops in community with people and in office with interns whome are psycholgy department students at Kabul University. then these sdudents worked with other people in their feild of work. by this way we are expanding the focusing in Afganistan.

A Sample of my Work:
Here i would like to tell you a story of one of my workshops participant in Parwan province that how nice focusing can impact his life he says:' before joining this workshop i have had very bad headach which i toke too much medicine but it didn't worked. but after jioning this workshop and learning focusing i lost having headach and now i am not taking medicine at all.' the same event happened with one of our participants in kindergarten in Kabul provence and the same other every where else in our workshops in Afganistan and these kind of helps makes me very happy and love to teach focusing to others.

My Publications:
here in Afganistan we dont have as much access to publishe somthing abut focusing particulerly, but in Pakistan when i was an employ of FEP organizetion we had published a manual of psychosocial well-being which focusing is also added to it. and still we are using it in our programes.But now we have a plan to have five level focusing by Dari and Pashto languges and also to be mentioned that we have our own style of teaching.
