Quotes4Peace

 "If there is to be peace in the world. There must be peace in the nations.

If there is to be peace in the nations, There must be peace in the cities.

If there is to be peace in the cities, There must be peace between neighbors.

If there is to be peace between neighbors, There must be peace in the home.

If there is to be peace in the home, There must be peace in the heart."

- Lao Tzu (570-490 B.C.)

Community Justice Centers To Emulate

   Photo by Jim Sheridan     
  

The Montpelier Vt. Community Justice Center (MCJC) was established in 2003 with the following mission:


To ensure that the people it serves have the resources they need to resolve conflicts and promote problem solving in creative ways that encourage feelings of fairness, safety, and inclusion.


The MCJC is part of the growing Restorative Justice movement that institutionalizes peaceful approaches to harm, problem-solving, and violations of legal and human rights.
 
Restorative approaches to crime view wrongdoing in terms of harm to people, damage to relationships, and disruption of peace in the community. The restorative approach holds those who commit crimes accountable for their actions, gives victims of crime a voice in the process, and provides an opportunity for everyone involved to decide how to best repair the harm and prevent future occurrences.

Restorative approaches to conflict help people find a way out of conflict as they untangle problems and find solutions that really work for them. In order to help neighbors or others who disagree, we listen to individual concerns, act as a go-between, create productive and comfortable ways for people to come together and talk -- and we follow through until everyone agrees that the matter is settled.

Conflict Assistance Program


The Conflict Assistance Program helps people untangle problems and find solutions that really work. The MCJC also teaches skills for resolving conflict effectively and peacefully.

"I saw a huge problem melt away."

If you are having differences with others about...

  • barking or roaming dogs,
  • boundaries or permits,
  • noise, light, or odors,
  • parking, snow removal, or shared driveways,
  • or other concerns
and if you're tired of arguments that seem to go nowhere, we can help you
  • create a solution that works,
  • stop feeling so upset,
  • and have better communication in the future.
When someone with a conflict asks for help, we
  • find a comfortable way for people to come together and talk about solutions to the problem,
  • keep the conversation productive, act as a go-between,
  • help people think through their options,
  • follow through until everyone agrees that the matter is settled.
How we help
We understand that it can be difficult to talk with people when you disagree with them. We have years of experience helping people communicate, negotiate, and reach agreements they can live with. "It was a very volatile situation--
and now there is a really nice
sense of community."

Why it works
The solutions you create with others have a better chance of working than decisions handed by down by courts or other authorities. You can settle the matter faster and without the expense of a lawsuit.
 
"I learned that I contribute to conflict more than
I was aware of. I need to sit back and listen ....
Conflict really does provide opportunity."


What it costs
There is no cost if at least one person is a Montpelier resident.

It starts with a phone call. Call Yvonne Byrd at 262-6260 or email ybyrd@montpelier-vt.org for a confidential conversation. We'll listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and offer you choices about how to use our services.

You can get complete information on this Justice Center at their website at http://www.montpelier-vt.org/department/79.html

TAKE THESE FIVE STEPS TO PEACE

PEACEMAKING101’S

FIVE STEPS TO PEACE

 

Step 1 -  Pre-Schoolers to 2nd Grade

The Cool School  Game

Cool School: Where Peace Rules is an interactive computer game designed to teach children about conflict resolution in a lively, fun, entertaining, and developmentally appropriate context. It was developed by interactive gaming veteran F.J. Lennon, whose credits in the industry include projects for the Walt Disney Company, Sesame Street, and Mattel. This game provides children with a positive alternative to the violent images that pervade the video game world. In contrast, this game teaches social skills, and allows children to learn about foundational social skills in a constructive, socially-positive, school environment

 

                                                                                             

                             Step 2- Primary School Grades K-8   

                            Cool Schools Peer Mediation Progarm

                                        

     Step 3 -Secondary School Grades 9 – 12

      Leadership Through Peer Mediation (LtPM)

 

 

The Peace Foundation's Cool Schools Peer Mediation Programs of Step 2 & 3  is a whole school program for Primary and Secondary Schools that teaches essential life skills for peaceful conflict resolution. It is suitable for all members of the school community; students, teachers and parents. The skills taught empower individuals to build positive, caring relationships with others especially when conflict arises over differences.

Step 4- Typical or Troubled School Mental Health

Education Program

                                                                                           

One of the American Psychiatric Foundation's most widely implemented programs, the Typical or Troubled? School Mental Health Education Program educates high school teachers, coaches, bus drivers, and other school personnel about the warning signs o mental health problems. Adults close to teens – especially parents, teachers, coaches and other school personnel – should learn how to recognize the warning signs of mental health problems, and know how to refer the teen to a mental health professional.                                  

\

Step 5 – Adult Conflict Resolution Course for Ages 18+

The Conflict Network’s Online Course

CRN's E-Learning Certificate Course is an in-depth course in Conflict Resolution skills. Study is undertaken online under the guidance of a trained teacher. The course will usually take 30-40 hours of study to complete. On successful completion students will receive a Certificate of Achievement from the Conflict Resolution Network.
