Since 1973 the ONLUS Family Consulting-Room carries out support activities and listens to either Italian or foreign individuals (children, adolescents or adults), couples, families, within the Brescia area.

 

Always focusing on the wholeness of the individual, including their emotional dimension and their relationships, the Family Consulting-Room offers medical, psychological, social and legal advice concerning sexuality, fertility, love relationship, the relationship between parents and children and the possibility to assist youth in their growth.

 

The Family Consulting-Room is also engaged in pondering what arises from the consultations and from the analysis of the social and family changes going on.

 

The result are shared with the people working in the area, youth, couples, parents, teachers and the general public through the activities of research training, cultural events and the publication of booklets that are available at the Consulting-Room.
