Peer mediation

Peer mediation is one of the conflict resolution strategies available to schools.

The peer mediation program invites students to take responsibility for their actions by working together to find solutions to conflict. Two trained students (mediators) lead the disputants through a structured process. It aims to:

  • increase awareness of how conflict can affect peoples' lives
  • improve communication between students and between teachers and students
  • teach students skills such as listening, critical thinking and problem solving
  • empower students by having them take greater responsibility for resolving their own disputes.
