Tanaka, Gail; Reid, Kelley
Educational Leadership, v55 n2 p29-31 Oct 1997

Peer helpers can help improve the school climate by contributing to its health and security. Since 1979, Seattle's Natural Helpers program promotes the norm that it's alright to seek help. Implementation tips are provided. (MLH)
