Listen to our <strong>Pre-Recorded Show </strong>on <strong>August 7th</strong> at <strong>7:00pm CST</strong> at <strong>Blog Talk Radio</strong>.

As an educator, is conflict in the classroom interfering with teaching? Is your child missing out on classroom instruction because of conflict? Does your child come home upset, with hurt feelings and or just down-right angry because they are feeling powerless to fix a difficult situation? Then, why not use peer mediation?

In our Back to School series, Got School Conflict? Kids Mediate! young people need to understand that conflict is a natural human state better approached with skills than avoidance or violence. They need to know there is a better or different way to deal with their anger about the conflict. Peer mediation gives them the competence, courage and skills which empower them to deal with difficult situations so that they can realize how to better fulfill their needs and interests.

In this pre-recorded show, we have a number of very special guests. Anita Sitz-Castillo is a mediator of ten years, and the Peer Mediation Coordinator for the Amigos In Mediation (AIM) Peer Mediation Program for the past four years at the Bexar County Dispute Resolution Center (BCDRC) in San Antonio, Texas.

Our second special guest is Adele Pama Gomez. She is the Assistant Principal which includes her roles as a Peer Mediation Coordinator and Dean of Discipline at a Charter School in San Antonio, Texas. Adele served in Operation Iraqi Freedom II, and served in the countrys Army Reserves for 10 years.

Finally, we also welcome three high school students, Rebecca, Ramcy, and Gabriela who are specially-trained peer mediators involved in the AIM Peer Mediation Program at their Charter School.
