Synopsis

This collection of essays by academics and practitioners on the school violence and how to prevent provides valuable insight for teachers, parents, counselors, school administrators, and psychologists dealing with violent children and their victims.

Excerpt

The concept for this book emerged from eight years' experience with conflict resolution training in the inner-city public schools of Chicago. My learning and insights, while forwarded by the knowledge of the literature, developed from observation and admiration of “touchstone” teachers such as Mr. Baier and Mr. Ihles of Hancock Academy and Lynda Slimmer of the University of Illinois, Chicago. The understanding of youth behavior is a difficult one. These master teachers, along with the constructive commentaries from all my students, taught me the realities of this world. I am indebted to them.

This work is a logical, theoretically focused product of talented scientist practitioners who possess the compassion to connect with troubled youth and the clinical acumen to effectively assist them in life. The three parts of the book provide the reader with a sequence of how to think about these issues, what to expect from programming, and what to anticipate from participants (youth) of violence prevention programming.
