A Manual on Nonviolence and Children.
Judson, Stephanie, Comp.
This manual on teaching children non-violent attitudes and the skills for non-violent conflict resolution suggests teaching activities and methods, describes classrooms in which these methods have been employed, and explains the underlying theory of conflict resolution. The first part of the manual, an outgrowth of the Friends' Nonviolence and Children Program, presents the theory (based on reevaluation counseling) and suggests teaching methods in terms of (1) the affirmation of self and others, (2) sharing information and experiences, (3) conflict resolution, and (4) problem-solving approaches. The second part gives actual examples and personal accounts of how the theory has been used in several schools and discusses additional procedures for creating a non-violent atmosphere: meeting facilitation, staffings, and parent support groups. The manual concludes with a bibliography of appropriate children's books and descriptions of cooperative games are included. (BH)
