PEER MEDIATION

Peer mediation is an approach used in elementary and high schools to resolve conflict and provide children with problem solving and communication skills.   This approach benefits children experiencing:

  • Bullying
  • Verbal harassment
  • Being the subject of or spreading rumors
  • Physical aggression
  • Interpersonal/Friendship issues
  • How does Peer Mediation Work?
  • Peer mediation works by training students to communicate and mediate effectively
    with their peers.

In the case of a problem between students, peer mediators can elect to solve the problem or may be referred to do so by a teacher.  If a dispute erupts in a hall, cafeteria or in the playground, peer mediators engage in informal mediation, particularly when they witness it.  However, if an altercation occurs outside the presence of a peer mediator, the students who are party to the dispute are advised to seek out a peer mediator to assist with resolving the conflict.
