Any chance that this tool could be used to help a certain president of the church and his so-called adversaries.

When my colleague James Barnes and I were school psychologists in the Porterville Unified School District, California, we would train students in Conflict Resolution with added specific training to some students to assume the role of Mediators. This is a valid way to decrease conflict and violence. The January 1995 edition of Thrust For Educational Leadership, Association of California School Administrators, has my article on how Conflict Resolution can be effectively implemented in a public school setting.
