Conflict Management Training Seminars for Schools

Research studies consistently find that conflict management programs produce significant benefits for schoolchildren from improved classroom engagement, academic achievement, self-control and healthier interpersonal relationships to decreased aggression, disruptive behaviour, drop-out rates and social withdrawal.

Due to the many advantages of fostering a culture of dispute management and mediation in the education sector, the Australian government encourages schools to integrate conflict resolution education into teaching and learning activities and has appealed to the dispute resolution sector to partner with the education sector in this.

“The mediation community has the opportunity, together with educators in schools, to help bring the benefits of conflict resolution education to young people and their communities”.                                                                               (Department of Education & Training)

As a specialist in dispute resolution and leader in conflict management training, PERTH MEDIATION & COUNSELLING CENTRE (PMCC) has responded by making Conflict Management Coaching available to principals, teachers and administrators. Conveniently held on the school’s premises, the program involves multi-modal education in conflict resolution to ensure educators are equipped to mediate a wide range of school-related disputes.

Staff are taught:

  • Strategies to resolve workplace conflict and peer mediation skills
  • Techniques to negotiate parental disputes
  • Tools to facilitate bullying intervention
  • Methods to empower students to negotiate interpersonal issues amongst themselves calmly and respectfully.

Participant schools have been extremely impressed with the content and delivery of our coaching. On a scale ranging from Unsatisfied to Very Satisfied, 90% of attendants awarded PMCC’s Conflict Management Coaching the highest satisfaction rating and have reported gaining a comprehensive understanding of conflict management processes and the strategies and tools required for successful dispute resolution.
