Gender Tolerance Training

Gender tolerance - an unbiased attitude towards the representatives of the other sex, the inadmissibility of a priori attributing to a person flaws supposedly inherent to his sex, freedom from ideas about the superiority of one sex over another. The extremist manifestation of gender intolerance is sexism - individual or group behavior that discriminates against women, restricts their right to full participation in professional activities and social life, which is based on the idea that men are superior to women in terms of personal characteristics (Schekoldina, 2004).

Tolerance implies a willingness to accept others as they are and to interact with them on the basis of consent. First of all, it involves reciprocity and an active position of all interested parties. Tolerance is an important component of the life position of a mature personality, having its own values ​​and interests and at the same time respecting the attitudes and values ​​of other people. Without a doubt, the problem of tolerance and intolerance is extremely relevant and is directly related to the violence that occurs in our society.

In addition to violence in interstate relations in the modern world, “private” violence, almost imperceptible, is still widespread - in direct interpersonal interaction and communication. Any violence, in whatever form it appears, no matter how reasonable the arguments may be justified, always has a devastating effect on a person.

In this regard, one of the main objectives of the proposed training on gender tolerance is to make the transition to non-violent relations based on the principles of cooperation, mutual respect, understanding and tolerance.

The training program of gender tolerance is aimed at developing the ability to manage your behavior, emotions, communication and includes cognitive (awareness regarding issues of gender tolerance, improving psychological culture), emotional and volitional (improving communication skills of tolerant interaction, mastering emotional self-regulation in the process of communication and activity) and behavioral components.
The exercises for this training are taken from the work of Schekoldina (2004).

The purpose of the program is the formation of gender tolerance of the individual. The program is aimed at solving the following tasks:

? formation of skills for conducting a positive dialogue;

? development of the ability to introspection, self-knowledge;

? development of emotional stability and flexibility;

? development of social susceptibility (ability to empathy and empathy);

? development of ability to reflection;

? awareness of the diversity of the world and the manifestations of personality in this world;

? training in a culture of tolerant behavior in gender relations;

? development of self-esteem and the ability to respect the dignity of other people, regardless of individual (gender) characteristics;

? increasing socio-psychological competence.

The program contains 12 lessons that are held once a week and last 1.5 hours.

At each lesson, the work of the training participants is organized in pairs, triples and in microgroups of 4-6 people, in teams of 8-10 people.

If a group is more than 15 people, then it makes sense to give everyone the opportunity to speak out in a circle no more than two times per lesson, and to work divided into teams, microgroups. It is convenient to divide into triples in the case when two people act out the situation, and the third acts as an observer; The group is divided into teams to work out a joint solution and receive feedback.
