They are often isolated and targeted for teasing and bullying. We can help you to identify these children and give you resources to teach them how to use nonverbal communication more effectively.

Community Mediation, Inc. in Hamden, CT has been working in the New Haven and Hamden schools to train youth to be peer mediators for many years. Most of our work is funded by grants and some funds from the Board of Education. Sadly, those funds don't allow us to purchase something that would allow the mediators to stand out from other students. No safety badges, t-shirts, or even buttons that tell students who the mediators are. We are hoping you will help us change that.

When considering that one response to being provoked is to freeze, this week’s blog encourages thinking about what that means and what to do about it.

It may also be a reaction that reflects feeling immobilized. We feel powerless to know what to say or do. Typically, our brains are ‘on hold’ and we are not able to think at these times. These and…Continue
