Turning Teachers Into Educators of Tolerance and Conflict Resolution

The aim of this project was to improve the capacity of public school teachers to become mediators of behavioral change and contribute to build tolerance, decrease violence and conflicts among Syrian and Lebanese students. The project was implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEHE) and funded by the US Embassy in Lebanon. This project took place during the 2013-2014 school year where 442 classroom sessions were conducted in 13 public schools and under the supervision of 17 teachers and senior psychologists and psychiatrists from IDRAAC. This classroom based intervention consisted of 13 sessions which were conducted in each class, during which 1340 students participated (grade 4 to grade 7) in public schools distributed in the Cazas of Aley, Metn and Sidon. The teachers were trained in order to enhance the capacity of public schools educators to build tolerance, and manage aggression and impulsivity among Syrian and Lebanese students .The teachers were selected as mediators of change as they play a critical role in children’s lives and are familiar with their world and needs.
