This is the only text that is both a comprehensive training handbook and academic course text. The third edition includes new sections in each chapter for grades K-6, parents, strategies for school violence prevention, a computer resource guide, conflict-resolution training, systematic rewards for all grades, and methods for handling peer pressure and bullies. It also contains a collection of supplemental training tools. An accompanying video demonstrates preventive techniques described in the book with individual training exercises.
