Recommended Standards for School-Based Peer Mediation
Peer mediation can be a successful approach to managing interpersonal conflict in elementary and secondary schools. These programs provide a unique opportunity for diverse students to use communication, human relations, and problem-solving skills in real-life settings. Effective programs can help to create a safe and welcoming school environment, improve interpersonal and inter-group relations, and assist in reducing school conflicts and violence, especially when part of a comprehensive violence prevention plan.
