Date of Session: March 10, 2008

Session Description: One of the challenges of sustaining comprehensive conflict resolution programs involves integrating conflict resolution education into the fabric of classroom life. This session will explore a model, five approaches, and practical strategies for integrating conflict resolution education into elementary classrooms based upon experiences in the widely disseminated and well-evaluated Resolving Conflict Creatively Program. The session will also look at how conflict resolution education can be linked with social and emotional learning competencies, character education, and national standards.
