The ‘Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation’ after the completion of a training colloquium with rapporteurs the school psychologists Derek Wilson and Colin Newton, assumed the training and supervision of primary school teachers to implement the program Peer Mediation in some schools of Attica. The Peer Mediation program has been approved in its entirety by the Ministry of Education. The scientific design and supervision of the program was carried out by the Foundation’s psychologists-collaborators who support the implementation of the program and cooperate with teachers that are responsible for its application in each school. The peer mediation program is based on the idea of students’ education so that they function as school mentors (counselors) and mediators in order to resolve conflicts between other students.
The implementation includes three steps: a. Selecting students – mediators through applications and interviews (up to 18 students), b. Training (6 hours) and c. Weekly supervision during the conduct of the program at school (anonymous discussion of incidents).
