Summary

Summary

Ending School Violence: Solutions from America's Youth provides the framework and action steps necessary to reduce all kinds of youth violence. First, it explains, from a student's perspective, what violence truly is and how it begins. Students shared with us that violence in their eyes what primarily non-physical and resulted from the breakdown of relationships with their school. Next, the book details how we are all connected in our school and community and how everyone has the potential to affect the entire community. Third, it shows how communication connects the community and how strong communication builds relationships. Finally, the book details how every person (student, educator, parent, and community leader) can use their strong relationships to prevent violence and become a Life Winner through their actions and attitude. Ending School Violence was heavily researched and combines input from thousands of youth across America, leading education and psychology experts, all combined intoa step-by-step reader friendly book that takes a practical approach to ending violence. Recently this book was the feature story in Counseling Today Magazine and it has started a nationwide movement of empowering youth to prevent all kinds of violence in their school and community. Jason now delivers powerful programs for educators, students, and communities on preventing violence.
