Source: (2008) Changing ways / building skills, 12(2): pg. 4-5.Last year, I had a vision. I started a new job as an elementary school counselor and I wanted to be proactive. I wanted to find ways to reach the entire school, prevent problems, and create a positive climate. I’d always believed in empowering students and I’d always admired peer mediation as a means of achieving this. But be careful what you say out loud! Before I knew it, my principal was on board and telling others that I was going to start a peer mediation program in our school. Yikes, I really had to make it happen!
