Due to lack of resources, time and staff, many schools don’t have a peer mediation program, which allows students to help each other resolve school-related conflicts.
The Online Peer Mediation Platform (OPMP), a JAMS funded project, now offers an alternative solution. OPMP has trained a group of highly skilled peer mediators to assist other students across the country – online, in a safe and confidential environment.
During this FREE 30-min webinar two OPMP Team Members (Dr. Cynthia Morton and Prof. Karen Devoogd) and two Rockdale County students/online peer mediators will explain:
>> What online peer mediation means and how it works
>> How school administrators can request an online peer mediation for their students, by filling out an online form available on the OPMP website
>> Which cases are suitable for online peer mediation
>> How students can participate in an online peer mediation with their PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or smartphone
The Online Peer Mediation Platform is a project funded by the JAMS Foundation, currently managed by the National Association of Peer Program Professionals, and previously managed by the Association for Conflict Resolution.
