Leap - Confronting Conflict

Who are leap?

Leap Confronting Conflict works with young people and the professionals that work with them. We take as our starting point the belief that conflict is inevitable in the lives of young people, and that what is important is to enable them to deal with it in ways which are constructive and creative rather than destructive and harmful.

We work in partnership with the youth service, prison service and schools and have a reputation and track record for high quality interventions which have a positive impact on the lives of hard to reach young people.

What does the training involve?

Through discussions, games, exercises and role plays, students explore their triggers and reactions to conflicts, how to de-escalate a situation and how they can respond more creatively in the future.

20 students are trained to become Peer Facilitators at a residential weekend so that they can disseminate their learning and deliver training to younger year groups in their school.

Teachers are introduced to the skills and techniques of working with challenging behaviour and supporting the conflict resolution work of their students.
