The World in Our Hands: Conflict Resolution Up Close
The objectives of "The World in Our Hands: Conflict Resolution Up Close" is to teach students (and adults) that conflict(s) is often healthy and there are ways of resolving conflict(s) peacefully. The P.S. 261 Campus is one place where such conflict resolution takes place on a daily basis. Another objective is to teach the steps involved in conflict resolution. Resolving conflict entails very specific skills which are taught at P.S. 261. We are hopeful that we may teach others these very same skills which have proven so valuable to us on our campus. Finally, we want other schools to know that not only are children involved in conflict resolution but teachers, parents, and administrators as well are trained to be "peacemakers" and in turn train others. We would like others to "meet" these "peacemakers" and learn a little about their backgrounds. The 261 Campus also has approximately 40 trained mediators who deal with problems at lunchtime. We would like others to get a glimpse at a typical mediation. It is our sincere hope that other school will learn from ours and perhaps initiate conflict resolution programs of their own.
