Come to the CRAAM Program - conflict resolution and anger/anxiety management. Register on-line or call 724-327-1102. The CRAAM Program is a newly launched, Murrysville area, strengths-based initiative designed to:
1. Share what we already know about conflict resolution and about regulating/managing the anger or fear that triggers conflict or bullying.
2. Learn evidence-based conflict resolution and anger/anxiety management strategies that work well with children, teens, families, schools, and communities.
3. Plan ways to share some of the CRAAM strategies for conflict resolution with siblings, acquaintances, and friends who start conflicts.
4. Create constructive dialog for on-going fellowship, fun, leadership, problem-solving, and mediation skills designed to minimize destructive conflict.
