The nonprofit Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center hosts a free talk on Thursday, May 16, 2019, as part of their “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace” Brown Bag Lunch Series.
This month’s speaker is Majidah Lebarre on the topic “Conflict Resolution for Kids!”
“If you interact or work with children, you can learn simple tools to help them express their feelings and resolve disputes,” says Lebarre. “We’ll focus on concepts and socio-emotional components of conflict prevention and resolution for kids.”
In this interactive talk, understand what conflict is and develop specific problem-solving skills such as perspective taking, empathy, and “I” statements for children and adults.
Lebarre earned her B.A. in Political Science from Washington State University and M.A. in International Relations from the University of Sussex in England. She has assisted The National Democratic Institute of Nepal, Mercy Corps, and American Red Cross in their missions. Lebarre is the Program Coordinator at Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center, where she trains youth in peer mediation and conflict resolution. She is also a professionally trained mediator.
