Circle Justice: A Creative Arts Approach to Conflict Resolution in the Classroom
Gibbons, Karen
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v27 n2 p84-89 2010
This brief report describes a cooperative classroom art therapy intervention in a public elementary school that provided conflict resolution education, social learning, and group cohesion among sixth-grade students. The organizing framework of a "circle justice" group explored the roles of fictional characters in conflict, including group discussion, writing, art-based reflection, and problem solving. Results indicated a culture change in the group that is essential for incorporating conflict resolution in the classroom. (Contains 5 figures.)
