|In this workshop, mediation will be introduced not only as a way of resolving conflicts but also as a way of preventing serious crisis among peers/students by way of empowering and promoting ownership among peer groups. Peer mediation involves the whole process of goal-setting, strategizing, and implementing their individual and group goal. Participants will be taught to identify strategies that can be useful in group sessions based on theoretical framework in counseling. Practice sessions will be done during the workshop to allow the participants to have a feel of how to use peer mediation when handling individuals in conflict with each other.|
