PEER MEDIATION EDUCATION

Children who share the same age, place and problem have a conflict with each other. So, peer education is a process that helps solve these kinds of problems. Instead of generating, the peer mediator helps the children to solve their problems themselves using various communication techniques. Janet Reno says, “Peer mediation is a chance for students to work with other students to help them resolve problems, arguments, disagreements without having to get the teacher or the administration involved.” So, this course is a kind of teacher training course which aims to get familiar with peer mediation education, identify how to apply this process in schools, improve the students’ leadership skills and create a more peaceful atmosphere.
