Safe and orderly environments in schools are essential to promoting high standards for learning and ensuring that all children have the opportunity to develop their fullest potential. Too often, however, young people face conflicts before, during, and after school. Adults cannot solve young peoples' problems for them. But they can provide them with the knowledge, skills, and encouragement to resolve conflict in a nonviolent manner— using words instead of fists or weapons. Conflict resolution education is the key to making it happen.
Sponsored by the National Institute for Dispute Resolution (NIDR), The Handbook of Conflict Resolution Education is a one-stop resource for planning, developing, and implementing conflict resolution programs in K-12 schools. Authors Richard Bodine and Donna Crawford draw on extensive practical experience— as public school teachers and administrators— to offer a fundamental, comprehensive resource for every school or district that wants to incorporate conflict resolution principles, skills, and philosophy into the way children are educated.

Pressestimmen"An excellent comprehensive survey and guide." (Morton Deutsch, professor, International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution, Teacher's College, Columbia University)Crawford and Bodine argue persuasively that schools can be active agents for social change and that schools can and should intervene in the lives of young people in a proactive manner. Schools, they contend, can teach alternatives to violence. Such and intervention should start in the early grades and be approached systematically throughout the school curriculum. A major contribution of the book is the practical advice it provides to those who want to start conflict resolution programs in schools. From program design to an extensive list of resources, Crawford and Bodine provide many excellent examples of current best thinking and current best practice concerning conflict resolution programs in schools.
