The purpose of this BLOG is to develop a site where anyone using the body or movement in their work in violence prevention and developing peace can share their approaches.

My approach, published as Disarming the Playground; Violence Prevention through Movement and Pro-Social Skills (book and training DVDs) uses theories from the field of Dance/Movement Therapy to develop an embodied approach to creating peaceful schools and communities.

I know that there are people from all over the United States and in several other countries that have purchased my curriculum and made their own adjustments.  I would love to hear about successes and problems in using this curriculum as well as hearing about other embodied approaches.
