Cooling Conflict Workshop
How do you manage conflict on a day-to-day basis? How can we manage our emotions when a conflict of opinions occurs?
Working with project consultant Honorary Professor John O’Toole (Griffith University), Cooling Conflict harnesses process drama techniques and forum theatre interventions to help participants gain an insight into understanding different stages of conflicts.
Equipping participants with a cognitive understanding of conflict, this workshop empowers students to manage conflicts encountered in school. It will also develop the participants’ sensitivity, awareness of self and others, enhance team cohesion and provide a safe and constructive environment to integrate these strategies in real-life interactions with their classmates.

With Cooling Conflict, Practice aims to give students the tools to change the culture of their schools through cognitive understanding of conflict and bullying, using a combination of drama and peer teaching within the curriculum in a whole-school context. We seek to implement an ambitious vision, not a simplistic solution. Through its philosophy and its pedagogy, this programme works towards student empowerment.
The Cooling Conflict workshop has helped me to understand conflicts and ways to manage conflicts because it helped me see things in a different perspective.
The Cooling Conflict workshop has helped me to understand conflicts and ways to manage conflicts because it shows me the early stages of a conflict that I could have noticed and done something different that would have avoided the whole situation from spiralling into an actual conflict.
