Project Description:

The workshop will be conducted to evaluate the Curriculum, methodologies and approaches of Peace Education Program that aims to enable the participants to take actions regarding transforming their present human condition by challenging existing social prejudices, ameliorating psycho-social wellbeing and rejecting violence on different levels (cognitive, emotional, and psychosocial) in an active and effective ways.

Explanation of the approach

The approach of the program will be divided into three main categories that will consist of the following primary methodologies including:

  • playback theatre
  • Expressive arts where artistic techniques are one of the powerful tools that are used to deal with social problems and conflicts.
  • Communal initiatives’ development

Our approach is based on focusing on the traumatic experiences of the participants by working with them on expressing themselves, their ability to explore their internal pain, and trying to understand and accept it, and move forward. This strategy will take place through collaborative group work.

The approach will also focus on building the social networks in the community by developing better mode of communication. This approach consists of a series of sessions that starts by the relation to the self, others and community using a variety of artistic techniques as a tool for nonverbal expression of traumas. During the program we work on many levels of skills that help the participants to adapt to their new lifestyles such as cognitive, emotional, behavioral skills.

The second intervention the team will work on with the participants are the communal initiatives wherein participants contribute to the community, based on the lessons learned throughout the  course of the program.
