Given the increase in the number of cases involving family disputes in many regions in China, many sociologists suggest efforts should be made to help residents resolve family disputes, which, in turn, will promote social harmony and stability. The women's federations, at all levels in many regions in the country, during the past few years have provided training to their workers, to teach them the skills needed to help residents resolve family disputes.

Leaders of Guangdong Women's Federation from September 3-5 conducted a training course, to help cadres of women's federations, at all levels in South China's Guangdong Province, improve their ability to resolve family disputes. The event was held in Xiamen University.

Organizers invited psychologists, scholars (who study laws and legal regulations) and experts in family and marriage to provide lectures, to explain how the trainees could help residents resolve family disputes and help women protect their legal rights and interests.

By the end of last year, Guangdong had established more than 120 people's mediation committees and more than 440 mediation centers to mediate residents' marital and family disputes. During the past year, the committees and centers have handled more than 7,000 cases involving family disputes.

Leaders of Chongqing Women's Federation from September 5-7 conducted a training course, to help cadres of women's federations, at all levels in Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality, improve their ability to resolve family disputes. The event was held in Chongqing.

Organizers arranged for cadres (of women's federations, at all levels in Chongqing), dedicated to protecting women's legal rights and interests, to give lectures to the trainees, so they could improve their ability to help women protect their legal rights and interests.

Many of the participants said they benefited greatly from the training. They also said the lectures gave them greater confidence in their ability to help residents resolve family disputes and to provide better services to women, to protect their rights and interests.

The women's federations, at the district and county levels in Chongqing, have established mediation centers to mediate residents' marital and family disputes. The centers employ lawyers, psychologists and cadres with the local women's federation, to offer residents legal counseling to help them improve their ability to protect their rights and interests, and to offer residents advice on how to improve their relations with their family members, in part to promote social harmony and stability.
