The Effects of Peer Mediation Training on Conflicts among Behaviorally and Emotionally Disordered High School Students.
This practicum was designed to explore the impact that exposure to conflict management had on emotionally and behaviorally disordered high school students. High school students who participated in this study were from the west coast of central Florida. The practicum objectives were for students to show a 25% increase in the use of conflict management strategies; a 20% decrease in the number of discipline referrals; and decrease in conflictual behavior by 25%. The results exceeded the objectives' outcome projections. The target group participated in peer mediation training and worked with teachers and staff to use the training with classroom conflicts. Appendices include student and staff pre-intervention and post-intervention surveys, a parent letter, and peer mediation referral/report/contract form. (Author/JAG)
