Learning the Skills of Peacemaking is an excellent resource for conflict resolution and peacemaking. Naomi Drew has adapted the techniques of negotiation to the needs of children. If everyone learned peacemaking guidelines in their childhood, the world would be a better place.

Global peace begins with you. Learning the Skills of Peacemaking develops this fundamental concept. . . If this curriculum was a required course in every elementary school in every country, we would see world peace in our childrens lifetime.

Learning the Skills of Peacemaking offers students and teachers the opportunity to creatively transform visions of peace into ideas, ideas into actions, and actions into the reality of a peaceful future. Its broad applications could potentially influence entire generations in the direction of global consciousness, promoting communication and cooperation.

I used Learning the Skills of Peacemaking with
my class and the difference it made was astounding.
My kids really picked up on the process of working
out conflicts. Very often they would resolve an issue
with a brief prompt and no help from me at all. From comments I got from
parents, it became very clear that their kids were resolving conflicts
at home too. Thank you!
