Hi it’s the peer mediators here from Cherry Fold.
It is very important role if you are a peer mediator. We solve arguments. We introduce ourselves, ask what happened, how they felt, and how they feel now.
As peer mediator, we help people calm down. We take them inside to our peer mediation room and talk with them about the conflict they are experiencing.
We learned about STARR [ S=stop T=think A=act R=reflect R=reward]
GLIDE [G=greeting L=listening I=ideas D=decision E=end.]
When peer mediators see someone disagreeing with another person, they take them inside and tell them the 3 promises:
‘we will not take sides; we won’t boss around and won’t gossip but we will need to tell the teacher.’
3 ground rules: listen to each other; no shouting or name calling.
We were trained by two fantastic peer mediation visitors.
