Annotation: This trainer's guide presents the content, activities, and background information for a course on interpersonal relations as part of a curriculum aimed at reducing violence, vandalism, and disruption in schools.
Abstract: The 7-hour is intended for teachers, school administrators, students, parents, youth advocates, school security personnel, and community organization representatives. The course's instructional objectives are to identify sources of conflict, to present methods for dealing with conflict, to review programs schools have used to resolve conflict and defuse tension, and to examine gang psychology and behavior and suggest containment strategies for it. Additional goals are to describe characteristics of people prone to victimization, to suggest ways to reduce their vulnerability, and to examine approaches to increase intercultural sensitivity. The course's five modules are taught through lecture, audiovisual presentation, role playing, and group discussion. For each module, the training guide includes a synopsis, a summary of content and major learning activities, and a detailed step-by-step narrative which includes directions for the trainer. Lists of materials and equipment needed, additional readings covering selected parts of each training module, and a list of five audiovisual resources are included. For other trainer's guides, see NCJ 69756-58 and 69760-62. For participants' guides, see NCJ 69749-55.
