Programs for Schools
Is there a situation in your school that has become unmanageable?
Do you have a class of youth or children who want to perform better as a cohesive group?
Is there an undercurrent of bullying in your school and you want to intervene in a psychologically supported way?
The Institute for Conflict will work with your school to analyze the class dynamics and the students and put together a set of sessions. These sessions will serve as interventions that will provide methods to tackle problems of: verbal or physical violence, bullying, a poor class climate, or disciplinary difficulties. The goal of the IFC and Dr. Lahab Al-Samarrai is to support constructive and creative problem solving within schools in the Greater Seattle Area. Solutions created through the IFC program can be continuously implemented and maintained long after the intervention has taken place.
We work within the classroom and throughout the school to find the solutions and inspire the trans-formative effects that resolving conflicts can and will illuminate. We also train and teach school staff, teachers, and administration to implement Mythodrama long after the intervention has taken place.
We are happy to discuss the wide range of commitment and time allowances that are reasonable for your school. We will teach students to deal with their own class structures, behavior patterns, and to develop their own coping skills. The intervention team can be prepared and operational within a very short period of time, depending on your needs.
