Student & Teacher Version
This set of material for training students to be peer mediators includes a manual with or without teacher instructions. You would need one manual with teacher instructions for each instructor and as many student manuals as there are participants.
The training is designed for a minimum of 10-12 hours, usually accomplished with a two-day workshop. The manual is based on an understanding of conflict resolution concepts as provided in the conflict resolution curriculum but includes some review of these concepts before focusing on the structured mediation process. Concepts and skills include the following:
- Understanding Conflict
- Effective Communication
- The Mediation Process
Also included is a Peer Mediation Agreement form to document mediation activities.
