When children have conflicts at home, parents can act as mediators. This approach to problem solving at home will create a consistent experience for your students.
Two-hour evening sessions introduce parents to the concepts and skills of mediation.
Parents are encouraged to bring their children and to practice the mediation process in family role play groups.
CRU Institute provides a four-session manual for parent training. The manual includes sections on the Mediation Process and Skills, Using Med-Arb, Being Your Own Mediator with your children, and Running Family Meetings.
Family Problem Solving Booklets and Refrigerator Magnets help parents deal with family disputes that occur at home.
“I have used these skills with my sister. [Mediation] is a good experience and you can use these skills anywhere, any time.”
“I definitely would [recommend conflict mediation training] to others because it will help me in the future, and it feels good to help others.”
