Got School Conflict? Kids Mediate!

As an educator, is conflict in the classroom interfering with teaching? Is your child missing out on classroom instruction because of conflict? Does your child come home upset, with hurt feelings and or justdown-right angry because they are feeling powerless to fix a difficult situation? Then, why not use peer mediation?

In our Back to School series, Got School Conflict? Kids Mediate! young people need to understand that conflict is a natural human state better approached with skills than avoidance or violence. They need to know there is a better or different way to deal with their anger about the conflict. Peer mediation gives them the competence, courage and skills which empower them to deal with difficult situations so that they can realize how to better fulfill their needs and interests.

Mentored Peer Mediation

 We continue our Back to School series with Dr. Pamela Lane-Garon on Mentored Peer Mediation. Peer mediation has made a difference in schools all over our nation for 30 years. Mediator Mentors is a university-public school partnership in which future teachers, counselors, social workers and school psychologists support the development of conflict resolution skills in school children. This program offers an opportunity for future helping professionals (teachers, counselors, social workers, school psychologists, etc.) to support the development of respectful conflict resolution skills among school children in our community. In this show, we will talk about how Mentored Mediation is different from Peer Mediation.
