Dr. Ken Breeding has spent his professional life in the fields of psychology and education, working to develop and nurture learning communities that promote the development of healthy, whole human beings. He has over 28 years of experience as a teacher, counselor and leader in public schools. He has also taught at the college and university level for almost 16 years. He maintains a small practice in individual and family psychotherapy, but spends most of his time training and consulting with districts in the areas of social and emotional literacy, conflict resolution, and inter-group relationships.
Jane Harrison has more years of experience than she sometimes likes to admit, and most of those have been in the classroom. It was the pursuit of materials to improve the learning climate of her own classroom that led her to begin to implement some of the lessons that you ll see in this curriculum. The changes that she saw in the students, in herself, and in her relationship to the students, are what led her to begin her work with Educators for Social Responsibility. Over the last 10 years, she as worked both nationally and internationally with schools, providing training for students, school staffs and parents and has worked with students from pre-kindergarten through high school, in rural, suburban and inner-city settings. She owes a great deal of gratitude to her own children, who gave her the opportunity to continually improve and refine her own conflict resolution skills, and who now provide her with constant love and support.Review:
Connected and Respected teaches students to effectively express their emotions, giving them the tools to communicate assertively and non-violently. The difference these skills have made to our students is invaluable! --Judy Tillyer, Principal, Grapevine Elementary
I wish the Resolving Conflict Creatively Program could be taught in every classroom in America and hope that this wonderful new and teacher-friendly curriculum helps make that possible. --Marian Wright Edelman, Founder, Children's Defense Fund
RCCP has started me on a tremendous journey. Not only has it helped create a stronger classroom/school community, it has given me and my students the skills, voice, tools, and power to confront the obstacles and turns in life we meet each day. --Tammy Deleray, Bret Harte Elementary
