Mediation to Restore Respect @ iHotel
Apr 6 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Unresolved conflicts in schools build barriers to learning, including low motivation, lack of focus, and disruptive behaviors that remove students from the classroom. With the passage of SB 100, Illinois school districts are seeking restorative interventions that build positive school relationships and model social skills. Data show mediation as highly effective in repairing relationships and boosting understanding across racial lines. The goal of mediation is to restore the respect so teachers can teach and students can learn.

This workshop will share evidence-based restorative mediation techniques for use with teachers and students in Grades K-12. The workshop will show the process of starting a teacher-student mediation program, conducting successful mediations, and collecting and monitoring data to measure the effectiveness of the interventions. The workshop will also show how to use the technique to mediate conflicts between students to stop aggressive and bullying behaviors.

The presenter, Ondine Gross, M.S., Ed.M., is an author and nationally certified school psychologist in a busy, diverse public high school. She uses “in the trenches” humor, examples, and role playing to show how to successfully conduct mediations.
