This document is the Spanish language supplement to "Second Step" for preschool and kindergarten, a violence-prevention curriculum designed to reduce impulsive and aggressive behavior in young children and to increase their social competence.

These include stories and discussions, role plays and activities, take-home letters, puppet scripts, and song sheets. The following three units are included: (1) a unit of 12 lessons on empathy that centers on feelings, self-esteem, and concern for the feelings of others; (2) a unit of 10 lessons on control of impulses that focuses on problem solving and social behavior; and (3) a unit of 6 lessons on managing anger, with advice on how to react to provocation.
