Peer Meditation

GT-Peer-mediation.pngAdvisors: Dave Ogden

The Peer Mediation program trains selected students in the skills required to successfully resolve interpersonal conflicts (e.g., communication, problem solving, anger management and mediation). These Peer Mediators, in turn, work with other members of the student body who are involved in an interpersonal conflict.

The philosophy of the program is based on the knowledge that youth tend to turn to other youth, rather than to adults, with their problems. The Peer Mediation program teaches students that they can learn the skills to successfully resolve their own conflicts.
