Everyday Conflicts, Creative Solutions: A Conflict Manager Training Video for Elementary School Children. [Videotape].
Conflict Resolution Unlimited, Inc., Bellevue, WA.
Children need to learn and to use alternative dispute resolution skills. Ways in which to instruct young people in these skills are detailed in this leader's guide and accompanying video. After outlining the conflict management process, the text describes how to use the video. The video, which shows students what mediation is, opens with a typical dispute between a boy and his little sister, which the parents handle using "Arbitration." The boy then goes to school and gets into a similar dispute with another student on the playground. Student conflict managers help the two work out a solution to the problem. The video coordinates with Conflict Resolution Unlimited programs at the point of the topic "What is a Conflict Manager?" and it may also be used with students to model conflict management techniques or to serve as an introduction for adults to the school's conflict resolution program.
