Embracing Diversity, Preventing Bullying and Violence

Description

Concept by Ilaria Barbieri

All European schools differ from one another, but at the same time, they struggle with similar issues. Among these, it seems that discrimination and bullying are some of the most diffused and dangerous problems.

Not only can they have negative effects on learning, but they can also lead to long-lasting, sad consequences that can affect the students throughout their whole lives. 

The increasing diffusion of problems connected to discrimination and bullying in schools should not make teachers feel weaker.

On the contrary, if staff get together, observe real scenarios, and combine their strengths, they can set up effective strategies to improve educational processes, with small steps being taken every day. 

By the end of the training, participants will have a deeper insight into the dynamics underlying discrimination and bullying in schools.

They will also have developed skills and practiced methodologies to prevent conflicts, manage emotions, and foster a better and healthier school environment.

Please note: if you are an educator working with disadvantaged learners and you wish to attend a specific course about that, you can have a look at our seminaries focused on Special Needs.
