Workshop on conflict
WORKSHOP ON CONFLICT RESOLUTION
The holistic program for Tong-Len Hostel students encourages overall development of an individual in all aspects-Spiritual, Social, Emotional, Physical and Academic. As part of social and emotional development under holistic education, Tong-Len invited Tibetan Center for Conflict Resolution to interact with the senior students, guiding them on individual management of conflicts.
Tibetan Center for Conflict Resolution is a registered and independent NGO with 15 years of experience in conflict resolution training and workshops. Though their activities they have helped connect communities together by encouraging healthy resolution of conflicts.
With their aim of strengthening the culture of dialogue, respect and democratic values Tibetan Center for Conflict Resolution conducted a three day workshop for the students of classes 8th and above from 12 to 14 April, 2017 in which 26 students took part.
In our daily lives, we all have conflicts but we always avoid talking about them. Resolving conflicts and dealing appropriately with them has become a necessity. Keeping this pressing need in mind, TCCR helped us identify and understand conflicts, how they escalate and how they can be transformed or resolved. The workshop helped us take a fresh look at conflicts among ourselves and in our various relationships, giving us tools to resolve them. The workshop was full of activities and games, aimed at inculcating a problem-solving approach towards difficult situations in life. We hope to take back all the knowledge that we gathered to our practical lives.
We were introduced to approaches we have not read or heard about for resolving conflicts like active listening, stereotyping, effective communication etc. The workshop was thoroughly enjoyable. We feel empowered and confident to face and take on challenging situations with a spirit to resolve and not escalate them. It was a great inspiration for us to lead enriched peaceful lives….
