Skills of Peaceful Resolution of Conflict - Topic of the Workshop

For teenagers, it was surprising that "nicknames" often are the cause of conflicts. According to them, if another name comes from a surname, for example, Antiya - Anto, Mebonia - Mebo, this is not hurtful, but if it indicates a flaw, it can cause a conflict.

Regular online workshops on: "Skills for peaceful resolution of conflicts" were held with members of the conflict management group.

The conflict expert of the Fund "Sukhumi" introduced them to these skills. They learned what rules they should use to avoid conflict escalation. They were sent a list of skills in messenger groups.

The workshops included 10 public schools: Hajalia (Lanchkhuti municipality), school No.2 of the village Lia (Tsalenjikha municipality), Gurianta (Ozurgeti municipality), Melauri (Samtredia municipality), Koki (Zugdidi municipality), Menji (Senaki municipality), schools: No.1 (Terjola municipality), No. 5 Kobuleti, No. 4 Poti and the Georgian-American School “Progress” in Kutaisi.

Participants rate the meetings as follows:

"I learned a lot about violence and bullying, friendship and mutual respect, thanks to the trainer and the organization."

"I will definitely master these skills and use them in my life."

“It's good that we are talking about this topic. We need to know where and how to stop during a conflict."

The project is implemented with the support of the organization Brot
