Abstract

Although it is the larger tragedies that make the news, smaller conflicts between students can build up in a school or a community and lead to bigger problems. That is why we believe something horrible should not have to occur before a school or community begins to look at ways to prevent violence. The program described in this book was designed to reduce violence and has been effective in both urban and rural settings.
