Peer Mediation comes into play when you identify and train students’ leaders to become conflict managers and the youth are empowered to be mediators. The mediator can help resolve problems on the playground or in the classroom environment. This helps youth get away from “tattling” to an adult.
There are a number of conflict resolution curricula that you can purchase. No matter which curricula you choose what is important is that you use it to empower youth to resolve his/her own challenges.
