The Peace Table: Conflict Resolution in the Preschool Classroom

Peaceful conflict resolution means working through a problem or conflict in a way that does not physically, emotionally, or socially harm anyone. Using these strategies allows children to feel competent in handling situations and relationships while fostering feelings of respect for the self and other people. Workshop participants will learn strategies to facilitate conflict resolution in their own classroom setting.
