Youth Dialogue on Social Cohesion and Security Threat
The threat of terrorism remains high around the world. Perpetrators manipulate religion and radicalise individuals to justify violent acts of terrorism. It is important to educate members of the public, especially youth from different faiths on the impact of terrorism on social cohesion. The 5 IRCCs from West Coast GRC and Pioneer SMC will be organising a youth dialogue on 8 Oct 2016 (Saturday), 10am-1.30pm to forge deeper understanding of the issue and strengthen trust within the communities.
Counselling Skills Intermediate
Empathy is the ability to understand the perceptions of others and to identify with their emotions. This forms the foundation for successful counselling and the development of healthy human relationships. In working with community and having to mediate between various parties, IRCC members have to possess a strong ability to empathise. They need to be able to capture and relate to the emotional nuances of the people involved. Just as importantly, they need to be able to communicate this empathic understanding accurately so the parties involved feel identified with, and hence, less defensive and more open to working towards a positive conflict resolution.
Ground Sensing Workshop
The workshop equips the participants with the necessary know-how to better understand ground issues and manage racially-charged situations before it escalates. Accurate ground sensing is key to understanding ground issues and participants will be taught a framework to perform this task effectively.
The Speaker Series by OnePeople.sg is a platform to discuss racial and religious issues within a safe space. There are issues which may have a profound impact on the ground and our diverse community. For the upcoming session, participants will visit the Resource and Counselling Centre of the Religious Rehabilitation Group (RRG). With the ISIS threat extending its reach across the globe into Southeast Asia, Singapore and her neighbours now face several interrelated threats, including terrorist attacks and the radicalization. How has this affected our security, and what have we done to combat terrorism? The visit will include a dialogue on the threats of terrorism and how it impacts social cohesion. Participants will get to have a dialogue with a key member of RRG where participants will better understand the work that they do and the resources available.
Media Appreciation Workshop
The Media Appreciation course will provide IRCC members with an overview of basic media handling techniques. These techniques will be useful to spokespersons who have been assigned to talk to the media. At the end of the seminar, participants can expect to demonstrate the skills outlined in the workshop and be poised to deliver their messages with flair and confidence.
