Synopsis

From the largest and most successful school initiatives in social and emotional learning in the country-The Resolving Conflict Creatively Program, now active in more than 350 schools nationwide-comes a powerful, practical guide for teaching young people to empathize, mediate, negotiate, and create peace. The authors address everything from minor schoolyard conflicts to violent outbursts, and offer educators and parents proven strategies for enhancing children's emotional, social, and conflict resolution skills.

A model of emotional intelligence. . . . I hope that every teacher and parent reads this, and takes this superb advice to heart. --Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

"More than 70 percent of teachers who've gone through the RCCP training report that there is less physical violence in their classrooms and that their students now exhibit more caring behavior and increased skills in understanding other points of view. . . . The authors do an excellent job of outlining the steps parents can take . . . to create a 'peaceable home.'" --The Washington Post
