Safe and Peaceful Schools: Addressing Conflict and Eliminating Violence
Winslade, John; Williams, Michael
Corwin
In today's culture where bullying and violence are on the rise, we know that children who are afraid or anxious are in no state of mind to learn. If you are serious about creating a safe school climate conducive to learning, this book will show you how. Written by counseling experts, "Safe and Peaceful Schools" provides a variety of research-based techniques to help students, school counselors, psychologists, administrators, and other educators develop conflict resolution skills that reduce the need for disciplinary action. Each chapter addresses a mode of practice for constructing peaceful interactions, including: (1) Peer mediation; (2) Narrative counseling; (3) Circle conversations; (4) Undercover anti-bullying teams; (5) "Facing up to violence" groups; and (6) Restorative conferences. Included are vignettes, dialogues, sample activities, agendas, and charts. Conflict is inevitable. Teaching students how to deal with it constructively will help them learn the tools they need to succeed at school and in life.
