CONFLICT MEDIATION

Raney Conflict Managers

Conflict managers are specially chosen and trained students who help other students get along with each other.

     When students are involved in a non-physical dispute, they are asked if they would like Conflict Managers to help them solve their problem. If the children choose, Raney Conflict Managers will help them by using a problem solving process to clarify the nature of the problem and to reach a solution satisfactory to both students.

Conflict Managers learn

  • Leadership skills
  • Communication - how to express feelings and needs, how to listen well without taking sides
  • Problem solving
  • How to improve the school environment
  • Responsibility for their own actions
