Summary: Sometimes, a bit of word and a look or an implication is enough to destroy a person psychologically. This action called psychological violence is a kind of attack that modern people continuously face at homes, schools, workplaces, in a social environment and that slyly intrudes in the life of ours. Consciously or unconsciously imposed, psychological violence drives people into the mood of losing self-confidence, feeling inferiority and eventually causes failure in life, which is more painful than physical violence.
Taking into consideration this devastating facet of psychological violence, two regional institutions (Malatya Province Directorate of National Education and Regional Center for Teacher Professional Development) in two countries (TURKEY, ROMANIA) together with their local partners ranging from schools, NGOs and other state institutions aim to raise awareness of the awaiting danger of this societally neglected issue and thus creating a more respectful and healthier society.
In educational perspective, psychological violence can be said to occur between teacher – student, teacher – teacher, school administration – teacher and student, parent – student, student – student. Within the project, two regions with different culture and education systems will cooperatively work on reasons and solutions of psychological violence and try to raise awareness in the society and try to remove all possible factors that bring about it by a sequence of educative activities to be devised and realized especially by the participation of students and all partners. Along with some visual materials, such as posters, handouts, short movies and banners, the activities will be based on especially informative seminars, theaters, pantomimes to be performed by the students, who are real victims.
As a result, the objective of the cooperation between Malatya, TURKEY and Regional Center for Teacher Professional Development, ROMANIA is to develop ideas on how to cope with violence.
The project is financed by the European Commission within the framework of Comenius LLP Programme.
