From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive new resource gives secondary teachers 154 ready-to-use worksheets to help students learn how to resolve conflicts and build effective working relationships with their peers and adults!

Each illustrated activity helps young people develop the skills they need to recognize and resolve conflicts with others and acquire true self-esteem, constructive attitudes, and positive behaviors necessary for productive lives and careers. The activities focus on issues that students can readily relate to—such as rejections, bullying, gangs, and substance abuse—and require thoughtful, written individual responses to encourage dialogue and examination of teen roles in creating safe environments for everyone.

For your convenience, all of these ready-to-use activities are accompanied by concise teacher directions, printed in a big 8 " x 11" spiral-bound format that folds flat for easy photocopying and organized into five distinct sections. Following are brief section descriptions with a sampling of activities from each section:
