Description of organization:
The JEITT, a distinct but integral part of the Judiciary of Trinidad and Tobago, operates with the vision “Transformation through Education”. We deliver continuous judicial education to the judges and judicial officers in support of the administration of justice. The training and development programmes delivered are the hallmark of the Institute as we strive to improve the functioning and competence of the Judiciary and its judicial officers, keeping all au courant with changes that may influence the Judiciary’s operations.

Description of custom training provided by the Stitt Feld Handy Group:
For our “Dealing with Difficult Conversations” series of workshops, Stitt Feld Handy Group facilitated sessions which looked at the primary causes of difficult conversations. Real life video examples were displayed and closely analysed. Participants were encouraged to look at their own ‘triggers’ in daily life and discuss their views on them, following which they participated in exercises focusing on models for beginning, analysing and responding to difficult conversations.

The Stitt Feld Handy Group also facilitated for the JEITT a 5-day Mediation workshop in which participants took part in negotiating role plays, learned about and discussed Principled Negotiation, viewed and partook in activities surrounding Mediation scenarios, and engaged in demonstrations and debriefs.
