Zero tolerance provides zero learning

In today′s culture where bullying and violence are on the rise, we know that children who are afraid or anxious are in no state of mind to learn. If you are serious about creating a safe school climate conducive to learning, this book will show you how. Written by counseling experts, Safe and Peaceful Schools provides a variety of research-based techniques to help students, school counselors, psychologists, administrators, and other educators develop conflict resolution skills that reduce the need for disciplinary action. Each chapter addresses a mode of practice for constructing peaceful interactions, including:

Peer mediationNarrative counselingCircle conversationsUndercover anti-bullying teams"Facing up to violence" groupsRestorative conferences

Included are vignettes, dialogues, sample activities, agendas, and charts. Conflict is inevitable. Teaching students how to deal with it constructively will help them learn the tools they need to succeed at school and in life.
