It was an ambitious goal, but the ROMACT T.C.C. mediation training was complete within only two days (3-4 October 2016), instead of three and a half as it is usually required.
Organised in cooperation with the Good Relations Office of the Belfast City Council, the session was conducted by Ms Lisa Rose, and involved some 14 participants, representing both public bodies and NGOs from Belfast. A small number of participants were representatives of the Health Service Executive of the Republic of Ireland, based in Dublin.
The training is not over for the 14 participants however, since they will be applying the newly acquired notions in their daily work for a period of at least six months. The practice period will be followed by a second training session which will complete their learning cycle on effective intercultural mediation, based on the ROMED methodology.
Training of Intercultural Mediators is one of the three modules within the ROMACT Transnational Cooperation Component (T.C.C.), along Intercultural training and Support for working visits.
