Peer Mediation - An Introduction

Peer mediation is problem-solving with youth, by youth. It is a process by which two or more students involved in a dispute meet in a safe and confidential setting to work their problems out with the assistance of a trained student mediator.If you want to know what peer mediation looks like in action, here's a helpful little video to get you started!

Introduction

Peacemakers' Peer Mediation training workshops are customised courses in effective dispute resolution for youth. We teach individuals concepts and skills for preventing, managing, and resolving conflicts non‐violently. These include life skills, "win‐win" negotiation strategies, mediation skills, and violence prevention strategies. Our programmes aim to help students, teachers, administrators, and parents resolve conflicts effectively.
