We train prisoners to be mediators using the Pain Based Theology. Prisoners are selected on a number of criteria:
-They are high status on their wings or
-They have committed a violent crime or
-They are perceived as gang members or
-They are trusted by other prisoners.
The trained mediators use this training to resolve conflict on their wings.
This 2hr interactive session is primarily for students aged 9-18 years of age identified as being in a gang and for those on the periphery of gang culture. Students not involved in gangs would also benefit from this workshop as a preventative measure.
