In the Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA in IlidĹľa a new cycle of lectures began regarding the topic â€žWhich forms of deliquent behavior are encounterd on a daily basis and how are they manifested?â€ś The lecture was held in collaboration with the Discipline Centre for Underage Youth, and intended for the students of the Fourth Gymnasium and the Technical High School for Graphic Technology of Design and Multimedia from IlidĹľa.
As a part of developing the Strategy for the Youth in the Municipality IlidĹľa special attention was given to creating a survey about peer violence for graduating high school students. In May 2015, The Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA conducted a survey and we have reached a devastating result that every third individual experienced some type of violence. That is why we have decided to start a cycle of lectures that would help the youth manage such situations. The Discipline Centre seemed to be a logical partner for such educational lectures in SPAJALICA. Therefore, we will hold three lectures in SPAJALICA that will discuss violence, stated the Project Coordinator of the Info-Point in the Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA â€“ Sunita Koristovi?.
The Discipline Centre is an institution concerned with the prevention of peer violence and any other form of violence. As part of tertiary prevention activities we employ educational-discipline measures, whereas secondary prevention is focused on individual preventive approaches aimed at youth which display high-risk behaviour but have not yet committed a felony or misdemeanor. The activities we realise today in SPAJALICA are organised as a part of the new cycle of primary prevention that is intended for the students of high schools from Sarajevo Canton. The aim is to improve and ameliorate the communication skills of the youth, to prevent conflicts and to capacitate them to solve conflicts in a non-violent manner, emphasized Amina ?orbo, a senior pedagogical adviser.
A great number of attending students and the interest of school pedagogists for the topic of violence made it clear that the problem deserves more attention and hopefully the lectures will be beneficial.
