Evaluation of the 2006-2007 Students' Creative Response to Conflict Program
Yungbluth, Stephen C.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the National Communication Association (San Diego, CA, 2008)
A quasi-experimental pre- and post-test design was used to evaluate the Students' Creative Response to Conflict (SCRC) program, which is based on the principles of conflict resolution education and social-emotional learning. It is predicted that SCRC will influence students to reduce their approval of aggression and associated problem behaviors (fighting and bullying), help them manage strong emotions commonly experienced in conflict (anger), and increase the amount of caring/cooperation they show. An independent samples t-test reveals that students who completed the post-test showed reduced levels of approval of aggression and increased levels of caring/cooperation behaviors. These findings are explained in reference to an emerging theory of supportive relationships, and recommendations are made for future practice and research of the SCRC program.
