Resilienz als Schlüsselkompetenz in der Kommunapolitik

In the organizer's words:

Since 2015, acts of hate and violence against local politicians have been on the rise nationwide. The threat situation becomes even more acute in the run-up to elections. Many of those affected say that they feel unprepared, emotionally overwhelmed and left alone.

In our seminar, we will discuss the relevance of resilience for local politicians. Resilience and strengthening resilience are not only important when dealing with hate and violence, but also in the context of a high workload with limited resources.

The aim of the seminar is to provide initial impulses for strengthening resilience through exercises and to encourage discussion. In addition, various prevention options for protection against hate and violence and concrete options for action in acute cases will be presented.

What you can expect:

  • Input on the phenomenon of hate and violence in local politics
  • Input on stress and the concept of resilience
  • Collection of options for dealing with stress and challenging situations
  • Exercise and exchange on the resilience pillar "network orientation"
  • Concrete options for dealing with hate and violence
  • Reflection and exchange on ways to protect yourself and others from hate and violence in local politics
  • Exercise for self-care

Target group: The workshop is aimed at all people who are involved in local politics (office holders and elected representatives) or who want to get involved.

Moderation: Frauke Puttfarken and Andrea Säckl
