In view of the high incidence of violence and intimidation in schools, this book is concerned with the need for students to learn conflict resolution, social problem- solving and peace-making skills. To strive for a peaceful community, the authors stress the need for children to learn socially acceptable behaviour, to challenge injustices and to establish personal and academic goals. Written for teachers at all levels, this book will serve as a useful resource for those wishing to address the growing problem of violence among young people.
