The project is centred around a 27 minute short film and an adjoining educational training material, developed with the direct involvement of students, teachers and various educational support professionals. The film presents alternative conflict resolution and communication methods effective in handling school-related conflicts.
The intention of the contributors is that the film will inspire discussions and creative thinking in itself, while together with the educational material based on it they will act as efficient support tools in the hands of their users, assisting the expansion of the method and the birth of constructive consultations in the educational communities involved.
In the frame of the six hour preparation workshop accredited during the project the education of moderator pairs (showing the film and leading the group-discussion afterwards) consisting of one professional in the social fields and one peer member of the student community are realised. In-school conversational and projection workshops held by trained projection pairs may encourage the management of in-school conflicts – currently typified by fear and inertia -, may start up procedures necessary for prevention and management, and may involve the parties in the direct solution of conflicts.
The additional aim of the project is to assist the establishment of networks between professionals and peer helpers as well as the realization of their online cooperation and consultation.
