Dialogic model of prevention and resolution of conflicts

This is a model for preventing and dealing with conflicts through egalitarian dialogue involving the whole community. In dealing with conflict, consensus among all parties involved, especially students, on the rules of coexistence takes centre stage, generating a dialogue shared by the entire community throughout the normative process (procedural ethics). 

The dialogic model focuses on creating a better space for learning in schools that is free of violence from the outset, adopting a preventive approach to conflict. It is considered more effective for conflict prevention and resolution than disciplinary models (based on hierarchies and the role of an authority that maintains coexistence) and mediation models (based on the involvement of an “expert” who mediates between the parties according to established rules).
