Prosocial Problem-Solving Techniques for Conflict Resolution in the Kindergarten Classroom.
Linde, Dorri B.
A practicum project was developed and implemented to reduce the incidents of aggressive behavior and impulsive actions among kindergarten students by means of win-win situations for conflict resolution. The objectives for the program were to achieve: (1) a 25 percent decrease of impulsive and aggressive behavior; (2) 50 percent of the target group able to identify at least three forms of anger management; (3) the application of problem-solving strategy for conflict resolution; and (4) a 20 percent increase in the application of problem-solving strategy or anger management techniques to resolve interpersonal, classroom conflicts. The program consisted of 27 lessons integrating children's literature, music and puppets with three strategies: empathy training; impulse control using problem-solving techniques; and anger management for conflict resolution. Three of the objectives were met. The objective to have 50 percent of the target group able to identify three forms of anger management techniques was not met. However, 40 percent of the target group successfully satisfied this objective. (Fifteen appendices include a copy of the teacher survey, target setting behavior referrals, project interviews, weekly lesson schedule, and tallies of pre- and post-project conflict incidents. Contains 37 references.) (Author/AA)
