Conflict Resolution Skills

Everyone needs conflict resolution skills! When youth learn they skills they need to manage conflict, they improve relationships with peers, parents, teachers, and community members.  Strong relationships improve school attendance, school success, and reduce conflict at home.

Youth Mediation

Peer Mediators 2013-14

Youth can also learn to be mediators.  Peer mediators learn to help others resolve conflicts with a proven process.  Like all mediators, they are neutral, non-judgmental, and promote self-determination.  Peer mediators develop skills in listening, brainstorming, asking good questions, remaining non-judgmental, respecting others, and negotiation.  Peer mediation training programs last between 8 and 16 hours.  Many school in our communities use peer mediators to resolve interpersonal conflicts between students.  Peer mediation improves school climate, reduces fighting, and develops leaders.
