Conflict Mediation for a New Generation: Training Manual for Educators.
Wampler, Faye H.; Hess, Susan A.
This manual is designed to assist the school and trainers in preparing students to become peer mediators. The program seeks to find peaceful solutions to problems, and recognizes that conflict is a natural process and that students can solve their own problem and are responsible people. The format puts introductory and program startup materials first. Following are the schedules and activities for elementary, middle, and high school levels. Some activities are used at all three levels. When an exercise is used at more than one level, it has been put in the elementary section. The page number for the exercise is given in subsequent sections. Objectives for this manual include: (1) to serve as a supplement to the conflict mediation workshop, which is largely experimental; (2) to provide educators with training materials to use with students in implementing a peer mediation program; and (3) to serve as a resource for educators who wish to teach students conflict resolution skills within a particular curriculum.
