TRAINING FOR MEDIATION IN CONFLICTSTraining for teachers on the topic “Mediation in conflicts” was held on the 7th – 9th September at the hotel Park, Ohrid where 15 pedagogues and teachers from 5 secondary schools participated: “Nikola Karev”, “Cvetan Dimov”, “Dr. Pance Karagjozov” and “Gjorgji Dimitrov” from Skopje and “Nikola Stein” from Tetovo.

The goal of this training was increasing the knowledge about techniques and skills for mediation in conflicts. The training was conceived as interactive workshops, through the plenary, group and individual work. The group had a high degree of cooperation and the participants were well prepared for the topic. The mutual assistance was an essential part of the training process.

The training was implemented by the following team:

Diana Lampen and John Lampen , trainers from “The Hope Project” from Great Britain who presented their knowledge and skills on a highly professional level.

Special thanks to FORUM ZFD from Germany that covered the costs for the training, especially to Silke and Igor.

On the 24th October we had a meeting with the participants from the seminar and we concluded that the benefits of the training are especially evident in the daily work of the pedagogues and teachers and in the conflict situations at schools. The participants at the meeting presented different examples of mediation in conflicts that were successfully resolved. Silke and Igor provide the literature for mediation and we agreed to have another meeting for the next steps in this process.
