SCRAM is an interactive role play competition for Western Australian Year 9 & 10 high school students which facilitates the development of peaceful dispute resolution awareness and skills in secondary school communities.

Students mediate simulated disputes which relate to their everyday lives. The outcome of the mediated process is a mutual agreement which acknowledges the needs of all involved.

SCRAM is an initiative of WADRA (Western Australian Dispute Resolution Association).

Aims of SCRAM
SCRAM aims to promote and consolidate communication skills, negotiation skills and decision making skills: namely active listening, analysing, questioning, empathising, creative and logical thinking as well as the ability to speak clearly and concisely.

SCRAM aims to influence the school and the community through the skills the students learn. It provides an enjoyable and dynamic way of introducing students to the mediation process.

The SCRAM website for teachers, students, coaches and adjudicators provides access to the training manual, timelines, case material, a short video and current news. The role play competition handbooks are available online as well.
