Unresolved conflicts in schools build barriers to learning, including low motivation, lack of focus, and disruptive behaviors that remove students from the classroom. When teacher-student conflicts occur, the negative effects can be long-lasting without a safe and structured way to repair the relationship. This reader-friendly guidebook has a concrete, evidence-based solution: an easy and effective 50-minute mediation technique for teachers and students in Grades K-12. School psychologist Ondine Gross guides you through the whole process of starting a teacher-student mediation programme, conducting successful mediations, and collecting and monitoring data to determine the effectiveness of the programme. You'll also learn how to use the technique to mediate conflicts between students and between adults in schools, including staff members and parents. Highly successful as a Tier II intervention, this common-sense solution will help your school leave ineffective discipline techniques behind-and embrace more supportive approaches that model social and problem solving skills, reduce suspensions, and keep students learning. Why Mediation?
