Resolving Conflicts Creatively Program (RCCP)

The Resolving Conflicts Creatively Program (RCCP) has been lauded for its success in creating school change by effectively introducing a value system that results in students solving conflicts peacefully. In operation since 1985, RCCP is aimed at all youth, not just those in the high-risk category. The program involves continual training of teachers, who then train their students in RCCP. The program does not advocate walking away from conflict. Rather, it focuses on constructive problem solving by using such skills as perspective taking, cost-benefit analysis, decision making, and negotiation (DeJong, 1994).
