L’Associazione MARELUCE ONLUS  nasce dalla necessità di  dare una risposta a diverse esigenze  e realtà socio-sanitarie: nel campo della psiconcologia, dell’assistenza sociale e del sostegno psicologico.

Fondata nell’Ottobre del 2004 persegue esclusivamente finalità di solidarietà sociale e di assistenza psicologica e spirituale, e nasce con la precipua finalità di fornire sostegno a persone e a famiglie che presentano, a diverso titolo, difficoltà, disagi e malattie croniche. In particolare è rivolta a soggetti che versano in condizioni di effettivo disagio connesso a situazioni psicofisiche invalidanti,compresi i malati di cancro, e si propone di favorire nuovi e mirati modelli di assistenza psicologica e sociale che diano spazio alla crescita  della dimensione spirituale.

L’obiettivo primariodell’Associazione MARELUCE ONLUS è promuovere, coordinare e attuare iniziative volte a far emergere negli individui quella componente umana, intesa come risorsa spirituale.

La Spiritualitàè ormai considerata anche in ambiente scientifico un grosso potenziale per l’essere umano e, se opportunamente sfruttata, può dare notevoli vantaggi nel migliorare la qualità di vita. Nelle persone svantaggiate per natura o per cultura attingere al proprio potenziale spirituale può essere condizione fondamentale per un reinserimento ed un recupero dello svantaggio sociale o per il mantenimento e miglioramento dello stato di salute psicologica.

Un’associazione, dunque, che ha saputo integrarsi nella dimensione e nella realtà della città in cui è sorta sia dal punto di vista sociale che culturale.

L’attività di organizzazione, promozione e diffusione della nostra mission si svolge attraverso corsi continuativi in sede, seminari e stages con professionisti dei diversi ambiti, incontri e scambi culturali, formazione permanente. L’associazione MARELUCE ONLUS collabora con enti pubblici e privati e con altre associazioni culturali operanti nello stesso ambito per la realizzazione di eventi sul territorio regionale.

Il Presidente Daniela Respini, psicologa, psicoterapeuta, psiconcologa e fondatrice dell’Associazione, in questi anni attraverso attività sul campo, ha fatto tesoro di una grande esperienza in quei settori sopra citati circondandosi di professionisti che perseguono la stessa mission.  La sede dell’associazione è divenuta sul territorio locale un punto di riferimento per giovani professionisti del settore e alla loro formazione.
