Course Description

This training draws adult supporters from all areas of the school environment: parents, councilors, youth coordinators, administrators, campus security, bus drivers, librarians and cafeteria workers, all of whom assist the youth to run a Peer Mediation program. Adult support trainees must be willing to make at least a one-year commitment to participating as adult supporters. In addition to the identical basic mediation techniques provided to youth, adult supporters are trained to implement the peer mediation program on campus, to perform intake, scheduling, case management and on-going mentoring and debriefing of youth mediators.

The curriculum includes:

  • enhanced communication
  • active listening
  • understanding the causes of conflict
  • resolution and negotiation techniques
  • interactive games and role play
  • development of referrals
  • intake
  • case management
  • program implementation

*The responsibility for recruitment of trainees lies exclusively with the school that contracts the training.
