Even before there was a peaceCENTER, Rosalyn was teaching teachers how to introduce children to conflict engagement and transformative mediation. Working it Out! has spent the past decade as a battered photo copy of a photo copy, cherished by those lucky enough to have one. We’ve buffed it up, updated the reading list and are now offering it to the world. WIO! contains about 50 fun activities that can be seamlessly integrated into the pre-K through upper elementary classroom. Children learn relaxation techniques, communication skills and conflict transformation and the adults learn right along with them. Working It Out WORKS. Although designed for the classroom, most of the activities can also be adapted to family use.
