4 4 The Italian Model 1998 In Italy, the phenomenon of truancy and premature school leaving, as well as careers advice were considered as being emerging problems and not easy to resolve either. So, in collaboration with the CNR (National Research Council) and the University of Rome La Sapienza, a first experiment of the method was undertaken in Italy.

7 7 MaÎtre à mentoring 27/09/2007 Conferenza finale - Centro Studi Nazionale Cisl - Firenze There are 5 macro Areas of action by means of which the Mentor can operate together with the Mentee: –Games –Academic (school-wise) –Personal: speaking of oneself –Cultural –Career: orientation in choices as regards school, work, and universities

8 8 General Plan of the Mentor Training Process Model Mentoring USA/Italia Onlus MaÎtre à mentoring 27/09/2007 Conferenza finale - Centro Studi Nazionale Cisl - Firenze I Moment Orientation towards the activities of Mentors Preliminary meeting for volunteers to understand the task to be undertaken: A) Commitment required (two hours a week); B) The figure of the Mentor; C) The figure of the Mentee; D) Collection of information from each volunteer to be used in the assignment of the adolescent from the school (Mentee); E) Simulations of difficulties which may be met; F) Type of intervention to be made with the Mentee assigned II Moment Every week Large group – Identification of the themes to be treated. The Mentor receives suggestions from the Project Co-ordinator and the Scholastic Coordinator which are helpful in carrying out the task to the advantage of the Mentee. One to One – the Mentor is under the constant observation of the Project Co- ordinator while he examines the topic in depth with the Mentee. Monitoring – The Programme Development Co-ordinator suggests which strategies the Mentor should adopt in order to improve the relationship between the parties... III Moment At the end of every month Supervision – the Programme Development Co-ordinator has the task of summarizing work carried out by the Mentors during the month. The meeting is held in the presence of the Scholastic Co-ordinator. Formation of the Group The Programme Development Co-ordinator leads the group of Mentors in the presence of the Scholastic Co-ordinator, and helps, with logic of the self- help groups to suggest possible ways of overcoming the difficulties with the Mentees. The Mentors are trained and monitored on a weekly basis and supervised monthly by the Programme Development Co-ordinator (teacher) in collaboration with a teacher from the school who has the role of School Co-ordinator for the Training Model

9 9 Why is emotional intelligence important for Mentors? How can mentors develop their own emotional intelligence? Competencies - Story telling - Active listening and empathy MaÎtre à mentoring 27/09/2007 Conferenza finale - Centro Studi Nazionale Cisl - Firenze

10 10 MaÎtre à mentoring 27/09/2007 Conferenza finale - Centro Studi Nazionale Cisl - Firenze General Plan of the Mentee learning Process Model Mentoring USA/Italia Onlus TRAFFIC LIGHTS Example of how the Mentor helps the Mentee to face a situation With negative connotations (E.g. argument between friends) Reflections every time the Mentee answers the questions of each phase, the Mentor rather than suggest what to do, refers the Mentee the memory of a similar situation already experienced menteeMentor II Phase III Phase I Phase Position I – the Mentee is helped by the Mentor to express the previous negative experience Position YOU – the Mentee is helped by the Mentor to identify himself in the situation experienced by the other person, (e.g. victim or assailant ) Position OTHER the Mentee is helped by the Mentor to make a third person (imaginary or real, but not present) offer possible solutions for resolving the conflict: the adolescent does not say; it is the Other-Self who says. I YOU OTHER The model enables the Mentee to reflect on his own experiences and to imagine possible solution/solutions which come from himself (not suggested by the Mentor but guided by him). Each intervention remains open and IT is not asked TO the Mentee TO give account: he is free to judge for himself since the traffic lights are A simple a breathing space and not a practical solution. The model is applied also in situations with positive connotations.

11 11 How can mentors build rapport at the start of the mentoring relationship? What is important so as optimise self-esteem competencies - Problem-solving, trouble-shooting, and dealing with blockages - story telling MaÎtre à mentoring 27/09/2007 Conferenza finale - Centro Studi Nazionale Cisl - Firenze 1. Lack of relationships/relations The mentee communicates that he/she does not believe in others and prefers to be alone. 2. The non-recognition of the uniqueness/individuality of ones own being The mentee does not believe that he/she is special and does not see his/her own originality. 3. The inability to make choices The mentee is often blocked by decision-making; he/she is insecure of which path to choose. 4. The inability to recognise the fact that he/she has values, ideals; the inability to believe that there are other people who can help us. The mentee does not recognise his/her own values and does not believe in other people.
