How to deal with conflict in your school

Expert Christelle Lacour, Université de Paix, Belgium

In this training, based on the Johan Declerck prevention pyramid, participants will be introduced to a number of concrete examples and a selection of activities and tools of general prevention, specific prevention and restorative measures aimed at dealing with non-compliance, social exclusion and violence in secondary schools. The activities and tools are all based on an empirical methodology that promotes full understanding of problematic situations, rather than merely learning concepts that are disconnected from reality.

The Université de Paix was founded in 1960 by Dominique Pire, the winner of the 1958 Nobel Peace Prize. A youth organization recognized by the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, it promotes the positive management of conflict, based on dialogue and openness to others. Their mission is to help and support people who wish to question and diversify their vision of conflict; train and acquire tools in positive conflict management; develop personally responsible citizenship, and acquire a new way of thinking about conflict management.
