HKFWS reaches youngsters in their campuses. With the aim of "strengthening families", we provide professional counselling service to nurture youngsters’ holistic development. Stepping into the Generation Z, youngsters indulge in internet, which creates family conflicts and parenting problems. Our social workers help youngsters facilitate their communications with parents and relieve family tension to promote mutual respect and understanding among family members.

Conflict Resolution

I witnessed my classmates having conflicts at school and I wish I know how can I help them.

Your concern about the needs of other students and intention to help them is appreciated. First of all, you should ensure your own safety. In case of emergency, you should inform the teacher or school social worker at once. If the situation allows it, you can try to tell your classmates to calm down and encourage them to seek mediation from teachers or peer mediators. It is crucial to avoid adding fuel to the fire or favoring any parties involved. We believe students can express their needs and feelings in an appropriate manner through mediation, and learn to resolve disputes in a peaceful and constructive way.
