Making the Peace : A 15-Session Violence Prevention Curriculum for Young People - 97 edition

Making the Peace : A 15-Session Violence Prevention Curriculum for Young People (ISBN10: 0897932056; ISBN13: 9780897932059)
ISBN13: 978-0897932059
ISBN10: 0897932056

Summary: Making the Peace is written to help young people break away from violence, develop self-esteem, and regain a sense of community. It provides exercises, role-plays, in-class handouts, homework sheets, and discussion guidelines to explore issues such as dating violence, gangs, interracial tension, suicide, sexual harassment, and the social roots of violence

Drawing from years of experience in violence prevention, the authors outline a 15-session program that
is grouped into three units. Part One explains basic concepts and establishes a framework of safety and respect within the class. Part Two looks at the forms that violence takes. Part Three focuses on healing from the past and introduces individual and group activities that can help to make the peace. The opening chapter, "Before You Begin," offers guidelines to teachers for doing violence prevention work with young people.

Throughout the book, there are practical suggestions for facilitators, from arranging desks to promote discussion to anticipating rough spots and handling difficult responses. All handouts and homework exercises are ready to use and are designed for easy reproduction. Flexible enough to use during consecutive days or throughout a semester, Making the Peace is a beginning, not an end. By addressing sensitive issues with respect, it models the important process of developing the skills that can help young people to build violence-free relationships.
