Conflict Resolutions & Decision Making


This program is about teaching effective ways to resolve disputes without resorting to violent behaviors whether it be a verbal or physical altercation. Daily our young people are involved in situations of conflict that they cannot manage – jealousy, teasing/bullying and outright aggression that often lead to legal ramifications. Effective problem solving skills are also at the core of being successful.
