Overview

The need to help children understand war and develop peacemaking skills continues.

Communication technology brings distant hostilities into our living-rooms on a daily basis. Research has demonstrated that children are frightened by the threat of war and that they discuss these concerns only minimally at home or school. Dr. Goldberg has been documenting young people's responses to conflict for the past twenty years. She has also worked with organizations throughout North America to compile strategies to help young people cope with the fears they experience.

Times of War and Peace has been written as a resource for parents, teachers, community workers and others involved with children. The case studies, "hands-on" ideas, and suggestions for discussion are presented with the hope that positive and constructive responses to conflict will help bring our society closer to the knowledge and skills that will help create a more peaceful world.
