Mayorga, Mary G.; Oliver, Marvarene
Perspectives in Peer Programs, v20 n2 p32-39 2006
Conflict resolution programs are one part of peer programs offered in schools to enhance the development of life skills of students. This article addresses the need for and role of conflict resolution education in the schools. It then describes several approaches to conflict resolution education. A review of outcome research concerning conflict resolution is included. One such outcome is reduced teacher time spent on dealing with disciplinary issues, which may have an effect on student academic performance. Further research concerning indirect outcomes of conflict resolution programs is encouraged.
