Evidence of effectiveness

Results from a quasi-experimental (QE) evaluation published in 2003 supported the effectiveness of Resolving Conflict Creatively for elementary school students. This evaluation included 11,160 grades 1 to 6 students enrolled in urban schools in the US Northeast (Latinx = 41%, Black = 40%, white = 14%; eligible for FRPL= 86%). This evaluation found that students who participated in the program self-reported reduced conduct problems, reduced depressive symptoms, and improved social and emotional skills (i.e., lower hostile attribution bias towards peers, higher levels of positive interpersonal negotiation strategy use) compared to students in the control group (outcome reported two years after outcome pretest). In addition, teachers reported increases in intervention students’ prosocial behaviors and lower levels of aggressive behaviors
