Peer Mediation: 20 Peer Coordinators Awarded Certificates
The Judicial Affairs Department at the Office of Student Affairs recently held a special ceremony to award certificates to 20 members of the third and fourth batches of peer coordinators trained in peer mediation.
Students attended the peer mediation training for a period of three weeks in which they learned important mediation skills that will enable them understand and resolve conflicts. They also learned how to help their peers to resolve conflicts using mediation techniques.
"This training has not only equipped you with skills to mediate conflicts with your peers both on and off campus," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, before presenting the certificates.
Hossam Shoman, a member of the third batch and a student from the College of Engineering said: "Through this workshop, I learned new things such as how to deal with difficult people, how to listen to people's conflicts and assist them in solving those conflicts harmoniously by bringing them together and facilitating communication between them."
"This program taught me that most conflicts are misunderstandings and that they are not as hard to solve as they seem. The Peer Coordinators' Training Program in Mediation broadened my perspective towards viewing conflicts as opportunities waiting to be reaped," said Noor Al Ali, a member of the fourth batch and a sophomore from College of Art & Science
