Peer Power Strategies for the Professional Leader: Becoming an Effective Peer Helper and Conflict Mediator by Judith A. Tindall

The Peer Power Program is a peer training program designed for middle, high school, and higher education students, focusing on 8 core skills: Attending, Empathizing, Summarizing, Questioning, Genuineness, Assertiveness, Confrontation, and Problem Solving. Through a series of exercises, games, and self-awareness techniques, youth and adults involved in the program can gain the basic communication and mediation skills necessary to effectively help their peers. The professional strategies book provides the program leader/facilitator with clear and easy to follow guidelines for implementing the Peer Power Program. After an overview of the peer program philosophy, training structure, and goals, the leader's guide proceeds through the thirteen Modules that are found in the student Workbook. For each exercise in the student Workbook, this leader's guide provides instructions for introducing and implementing the exercise, time and material requirements, description of its purpose and goal, and application assignments. Equipped with the professional strategies book, the program leader (teacher, school counselor, juvenile center officer, mental health professional and human resource professional) can quickly and confidently work through the Peer Power curriculum.


The purpose of this book is to provide the foundation for the strategies that a mentor will use in the Peer Power: Book One, Workbook: Becoming an Effective Peer Helper and Conflict mediator, 4th Edition. Dr. Tindall's knowledge, skill, and expertise are evident throughout this book. She clearly outlines the philosophy of the peer program, the training structure, and the goals. All of the modules that are presented in the workbook are described in this book...Whatever the population: middle, high school, and higher education students, community agency, or church group, the information in this book will be valuable...Another major feature in this book is the attention to detail. Each exercise has a clearly stated Goal, Time Needed, Introduction to the Exercise, Training Procedures, and Applicatin for Trainees After the Group Meeting...Working as a mentor you can use the knowledge gained in Peer Power Book One and Peer Power Book One Workbook, and hone your skills. - Dr. DeeAnne Vonde, The Peer News

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
