Bjerstedt, Ake, Ed.
Teachers can be more effective and efficient as peace educators, if they know about the typical conceptions and other psychological prerequisites of their students. In addition, psychological components are important in most conflict and war situations. This bibliography provides examples of publications containing studies or discussion related to psychological aspects of war and peace and of peace education. Among the themes touched upon are psychological aspects of violent conflict resolution, psychological principles underlying effective responses to war threats, psychological effects of war and peace, and the empowerment of individuals and groups to become more involved in and effective at peace-promoting activities. Many of the studies of the 1980s dealt with reactions to the nuclear war threat. The major focus of the bibliography is on materials written in English from recent years, with additional drawn from German and Scandinavian publications. Six of the more basic publications have been marked with asterisks. (Author/DB)
