Peer Mediation is a school-based process in which students work with each other to resolve conflict and address issues. Peer mediation programs promote conflict resolution while encouraging students to have autonomy.
I have had the honor and privilege of participating in the coordination and implementation of various peer mediation programs in LA County. My passion is showing students that there are better ways to alleviate conflict among themselves. Studies have shown that peer mediation programs have been an effective method of deterring fights, suspensions, and expulsions while preserving and enhancing the learning process. These programs can also give the students the lifelong skills of active listening and effective communication, making them invaluable to their communities in the long run.
I would be happy to lend any assistance that your school may need for this program, be it training, coordination, or implementation. Please feel free to contact me by email or by phone.
