The training programme conducted by Fondazione Mondo Digitale in Rome, Italy, involved 27 teachers, trainers, psychologists, psychotherapists and young people in a pilot training programme, characterized by moments of discussion and reflection on specific bullying related issues. Trainers on the project and the facilitators of the Fondazione Mondo Digitale used, among others, the innovative LEGO® Serious Play® and MTa methods to facilitate participants’ points of view, emotions and personal experiences while providing tools to stand against bullying.
The first meeting of the DisAbuse project took place today at Fondazione Mondo Digitale (MondoDigitale [site]). 13 young people with special educational needs and 12 teachers, trainers, and psychologists, talked about their bullying experiences today. They were able to learn from each other to recognize the phenomenon and to understand how they can cope and tackle bullying.
We successfully completed a dissemination and information workshop of the European project DisAbuse with the title “Cybersafety and Cyberbullying for individuals with special learning needs”. This was held on Thursday November 23rd 2017 from 2.30 -4.30 at the Institute for Art, Design and Technology (IADT) in Dun Laogahire. This workshop was delivered for staff members of Carmona Services in South Co Dublin.
