Schools Conflict Resolution and Mediation is an interactive role play competition for Western Australian Year 9 & 10 high school students. It facilitates the development of:
• peaceful dispute resolution
• skills in secondary school communities
Students mediate simulated disputes which relate to their everyday lives. The outcome of the mediated process is a mutual agreement which:
• acknowledges the needs of all involved
• maintains and develops relationships
The Aims of SCRAM
SCRAM enables students to experience cooperative conflict resolution. We promote and consolidate communication skills, negotiation skills and decision making skills: namely active listening, analysing, questioning, empathising, creative and logical thinking as well as the ability to speak clearly and concisely.
SCRAM influences the school and its community through the skills the students learn. It provides an enjoyable and dynamic way of introducing students to the mediation process.
SCRAM is an initiative of The Western Australian Dispute Resolution Association (WADRA). Find out more information is available at the WADRA website.
