Online Peer Mediation Platform – Students Helping Each Other Across the USA – 30-min Free Webinar – January 31, 2017

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
