Conflict Mediation Training for Middle Schools and High Schools
Who Should Attend?
Teams of two staff and four students are strongly recommended. A minimum team of one staff person and two - four students will be accepted.
About the training:
Conflict and violence are escalating problems in Kern County schools, as they are elsewhere. The purpose of a conflict mediation program is to train students to help their peers think of ways to solve problems for themselves in a peaceful manner.
Part I, staff will receive "basic training" in planning and implementing a conflict mediation program and will be introduced t the specific conflict mediation process of the middle school/high school. Do not bring students to Part I.
Part II, staff and students will learn how to:
- identify and overcome communication barriers;
- train other students in active listening and the conflict management process
- understand confidentiality and reporting requirements;
- develop an action plan for on-going training at their school site, and
- set up a conflict mediation program at the school site.
There are no fees for staff from schools that are members of the Kern County Substance Abuse Prevention Education (KCSAPE) Partnership. The fee for nonmembers is $100/person. This fee includes all workshop materials.
