Peer Mediation

DESCRIPTION

Mediation is a process used to get disputing parties together talking about their problems. A neutral third-party assists them. During the phases of mediation the two parties begin to communicate and are encouraged to find their own solutions to their problems. In school mediation programs, mediators generally work in teams of two. In mediation a problem is solved non-violently in a win-win situation with each side having its needs met. Mediation is appropriate when:

  • The disputants want to solve a problem.
  • The solution is negotiable.
  • The disputants can mediate as equals.

Mediators are facilitators of the process. Mediators are not judges, detectives or counselors. Effective mediators:

  • Remain calm in stressful situations.
  • Remain impartial.
  • Help without judging.
  • Work as a part of a team.
  • Are good listeners.
  • Are able to read body language.
  • Remain in control.
  • Keep things confidential.
  • Are able to direct the mediation without rushing or delaying it.
