Why peer mediation?
FoR YOUR SCHOOL
FOR Your STUDENTS
Student mediators reported searching for and adopting more interest-based, collaborative solutions after training. Mediators were able to see conflict as an opportunity, rather than an obstacle.
Far Reaching Skills
Mediators found opportunities to use their new skills in other situations - with family, at work, and in their community.
Students in conflict (disputants) that utilized mediation reported greater empathy, sense of belonging, perspective-taking, and satisfaction with the process.
Disputants reported they were able to maintain or repair relationships after mediation a dispute, and were able to manage new conflicts better than before.
Mediators felt their personal growth and new skills helped them in leadership positions.
Set Positive Examples
All students involved set the example for others by choosing mediation as the first option to settling a disagreement.
