Help Increase the Peace, A Youth-Focused Program in Peace Education
Morrison, Mary Lee; Austad, Carol Shaw; Cota, Kate
Journal of Peace Education, v8 n2 p177-191 2011
This study investigated specific attitudes and beliefs, related to the concepts of peace education, of participants in an "Introductory, basic help increase the peace program" (HIPP) workshop. Pre- and post-workshop ratings showed significant differences on two important attitudinal variables: first, the importance of being familiar with the concepts of communication, cooperation and trust, conflict resolution and understanding diversity, and, second, participants' beliefs about the importance of the philosophical themes of HIPP. The authors conclude that HIPP can be considered an important model program to be incorporated into peace education. (Contains 2 tables.)
