Humanitude relieves.

Humanitude liberates.

For nearly 40 years, our experience with the most complex care situations has shown us that the heart is not enough. Each professional will have to strengthen their knowledge and skills to create and maintain a relationship, the link of gratitude. During the training sessions, in the departments, with all the vulnerable people who make life complicated for professionals in the field, Humanitude’s qualified trainers teach our philosophy to reflect on each gesture of care. They teach the hundreds of techniques we have developed to know how to enter into relationships, to professionalize the pillars of looking, speaking, touching and verticality. They teach tools for a gentle, adjusted intake of care, with personalized meals prescribed, solidarity activities in living environments.

Welcoming the interest of this operational training approach, the Humanitude pilot facilities wished to evaluate this quality of care and ensure its sustainability through a complete reference system that they have developed with the Humanitude Label. They even demonstrate positive medico-economic impacts of general interest on work accidents, work disruptions, hospitalizations, neuroleptics…

Let us dare Humanity for the vulnerable, for the professionals who support them!

Humanitude’s philosophy¬†

An innovative, voluntary and impactful training approach
for the quality of life of vulnerable people
and the quality of work life of staff

Humanitude is interested in the links that allow Humans to meet each other regardless of their state, their status.

The maintenance of these links is based on three relational pillars: gaze, speech, touch and an identity pillar, verticality. These four pillars constitute the essential and vital foundations of positive human relations throughout our lives.

The Humanitude training approach makes it possible to professionalize support in the proper treatment of people in social, medico-social and health structures or departments and to prevent psycho-social risks.

It aims to generate a return on investment based on medical and economic indicators: work stoppages, accidents at work, hospitalizations, neuroleptics, etc.
