Peer Mediation @ OMS ! Hey Owls! Could you use help and support working throughh a conflict with a peer? Try Peer Mediation, today!
Peer Mediation empowers students to resolve peer conflicts with the aid of two trained student mediators. Peer Mediation is available for any student grades 6-8 and can be arranged by requesting a referral from team leaders, a school counselor or administrator.
Peer mediators (names below!) listen to each side of the conflict and help settle disputes using fairness, respect, and encouragement. Trained peer mediators serve as neutral third parties to help
participants reach an agreement that is both mutually fair and reasonable. Trained peer mediators help peers in conflict to resolve their disputes and create their own solutions, using shared problem-solving within a school setting.
Rules of Peer Mediation:
1. Be willing to solve the problem.
2. Tell the truth.
3. Listen without interrupting.
4. Be respectful (no name calling or fighting).
5. Take responsibility for carrying out your agreement
