A Model for Promoting Community Cohesion in Response to Conflict
Lev-Wiesel, Rachel
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v27 n1 p32-42 Mar 2002
A model of intervention for enhancing cohesiveness among community members who hold different political orientations due to the threat of relocation is presented. Residents of communities in the Golan Heights, Israel, were divided into two subgroups according to their political orientations: pro-peace versus pro-territories. The intervention model consisted of four meetings, each focused on one aspect (affective or cognitive) of members' political orientation regarding the possibility of relocation; these were a presentation of each political orientation with its rationale, a presentation of each most fearful personal scenario of the future, an analysis of personal coping resources, and finding common affective components underlying political orientations.
