An Alternative that Works

Developed and produced by award-winning student mediators and their peer mediation coordinator from Forest Park Middle School, Springfield, MA, USA.

This video is great for introducing and winning support for a peer mediation effort, especially at the middle school and upper elementary level.

The first segment shows a hallway dispute, a brief meeting between a student disputant and a supportive administrator (who makes the referral to mediation), and the mediation session. The session includes demonstration of the opening statement, opened-ended questioning and paraphrasing, drafting and writing an agreement, and age-appropriate analysis of the mediation

The last ten minutes of the tape features real testimonials about peer mediation from a police officer, parent, school board members, superintendent, principal, mediation coordinators and several peer mediators and mediation participants.

Voiceover and narration by students. Setting is a diverse urban middle school.

Duration: 30 minutes
