Tuesday, January 25, 2005 - The Ministry of Social Transformation, Culture and Local Government, is assisting Community Based Organizations in enhancing positive group dynamics and conflict resolution skills. The latest efforts in this regard took place on Tuesday, January 25, involving members of some twenty Community Based Organisations in Babonneau and Gros Islet.

Community Based Officer for Babonneau Mrs. Norma Herman, said the workshop focussed on community group leaders, as they are responsible for maintaining cohesiveness and smooth relations in their groups. She said one of the objectives of the workshop was to impress upon them, that when dealing with several personalities, differences of opinion are likely to arise, but can be dealt with positively.

“We expect that type of training to bring them closer together and we expect to see a difference in the way the groups operate, because we are going to enhance their capacity to deal with whatever confusion that may come up within the group, because we have told them before, there will always be some sort of misunderstanding within the group, because you are dealing with grown –ups and different types of persons,” Mrs. Herman said.

The workshop targeted mothers and fathers groups, disaster preparedness groups and other community based organizations. It was facilitated by Mrs. Fortuna Belrose and Mrs. Cecilia George, Assistant Directors for Community Services in the Ministry of Social Transformation, Culture and Local Government.
