Mediation practice in schools

Introduction:

Mediation practice is inspired by the values and principles of Restorative Justice, a world-wide social movement whose objective is the institutionalization of peaceful approaches to address harm, solve problems, and uphold legal and human rights. Simply put, Restorative Justice aspires to repair the harm that results from crime and wrongdoing by enabling all those affected by it – those who are harmed, the wrongdoers, and the wider community – to jointly develop a resolution. This often involves bringing parties face-to-face, even in cases involving extremely serious crimes. People who have stolen, defaced property, burned buildings, abused others, even murdered, will get the chance to meet with those they have harmed.

Objectives

This course wants participants to:

  • Achieve skills, which will enable them to successfully manage everyday crisis situations by conscious communication
  • Learn psychological, social psychology, communication, androgological, trainer skills
  • Mediation methods necessary to mediate between the conflict parties during the teachers’ work

Methodology

Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use: Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones.

Certifications
