Girona Families Learn to Communicate

Posted on 09 February 2010 by admin

The local police in Girona mediate in conflicts between parents and aggressive sons and daughters.

The local police in Girona, through the office of mediation, have helped in 19 cases of families with problems between parents and children. It involves youngsters, of adult age, who don’t study or work, who can’t communicate with their parents, find co-habiting very difficult, and can end up becoming aggressive towards their parents.

From the mediation office, in existence only one year, they sit the two parties down, so they can talk. In every case, there is a lack of communication.
” They are young people who do nothing, live off their parents, and cause problems not only with their own family, but also with the neighbours” said Irene Alcaide, sub Inspector of the local police.

The object of the mediation is to resolve conflict, whether it be between neighbours or families, before the problem gets worse, or even in some cases end up in court over complaints. During 2009, this new body of the local police has mediated in 106 cases, either for noise, or problems in the home.

“The situation provokes a bad atmosphere in the home, because the parents no longer have any obligation to their child, being adult aged, but so many confrontations are caused, but they can lead to cases of violence.” explained Alcaide. The sub Inspector added that ” Before they get to these extreme situations, is when the mediation office can intervene.” She said ” The mediator doesn’t judge, only listens and tries to help the two parties understand each other.”
