Effect of Peaceful Solutions Peer Mediation Training on Knowledge and Skills of Elementary Students.
George, Yvetta; And Others
Using the Peaceful Solutions Peer Mediation Training Program, a study sought to understand self-efficacy as it relates to conflict resolution, and the effects of sex and socioeconomic status on training in conflict resolution. Two trained adult mediators conducted 13.5 hours of training at each of 7 elementary schools. Each training group had between 26 and 28 students. Results showed that children participating in the training increased their peer mediation vocabulary and knowledge, and developed a greater sense of self-efficacy. Results on differences between girls and boys in this area, as they interact with SES, were inconclusive. (JW)
