What: The third meeting of our project will deal with “Peer Mediation”. Peer mediation, considered one of the most popular alternative discipline approaches, is a standard mediation in which students act as neutral third parties facilitating a conflict resolution between disputing peers. This method helps students engaged in a conflict to use communication, negotiation, and problem-solving skills to reach a mutually beneficial agreement. There are many benefits that a peer mediation program can provide to students. In learning the mediation process, students are given the responsibility and the tools to work out problems without parental or teacher supervision, skills that they can use throughout their lives. Peer
mediation also builds self-respect and encourages students to understand that their peers may have a perspective that is different from their own.
