Once there were two friends (Santiago and Bruno). One day someone starts a rumor that Bruno said bad things about Santiago and he got mad. So one day Santiago stopped talking to him. Bruno was confused about what happened. He was very sad. Although after a period of time Santiago start to feel sorry.
Stop talking to me your not my friend anymore
One day Santiago went to the counselor to ask what he could do to stop this conflict. The counselor said they could make a peer meditation and Santiago accepted. Santiago went to tell Bruno and Bruno agreed. Bruno was excited so he could finally tell what happened.
The first part for the peer meditation to work was the arguments. In this part, each person got to say what happened in their perspective. It was Bruno's turn to begin. He said that one day Santiago stopped talking to him for no reason. Now, it was Santiago's turn. He said that Bruno was saying a bad thing about him so Santiago stopped talking to him because Bruno was a bad friend. This is important so each one of the can clear things up.
The next part was stating each one's feelings. It was first Santiago's turn, he said that he felt bad and sad because a very good friend was saying bad things about him. Then it was Bruno's part. He said that he also felt bad and sad because he stopped talking to him. Now they needed to clear things up. Bruno said to Santiago that he would never do such thing. Santiago thought that someone could spread that rumor and Bruno never said that.
Now that they know what happened they need to find a solution. The counselor said that they could keep being friends and telling each the truth. Bruno and Santiago both agreed with that. They will be happy and be friends again.
Now that Bruno and Santiago know what happened, they have a solution, it is time for the final outcome. In this part, the peer mediators evaluate their performances so they can improve their mediating skills, which include listening, summarizing, and brainstorming
