Overview

Edited by Mark Amendola and Robert Oliver, this and other Prepare Curriculum Implementation Guides are intended to further Dr. Arnold P. Goldstein’s seminal work, The Prepare Curriculum: Teaching Prosocial Competencies. In conjunction with Dr. Goldstein’s Prepare Curriculum, the guides describe and give direction to the continued expansion of Prepare methods, offering practitioners coherent, evidence-based approaches for enhancing the social, emotional, and decision-making abilities of adolescents and younger children.

Book Review

“These manuals are thoroughly researched and crisply written. The authors and editors present an excellent understanding of group dynamics and propose very stable curricula. Though highly structured, both novice and seasoned professionals will find the manuals instructive, serious, and doable.”
