Excerpt: At an arts-based delinquency prevention program in Newport, RI, troubled youth participated in a creative writing workshop. Their writing, like their lives, tended toward the graphic. Some students felt their creations were being censored when only selected works were published. The issue was precipitated by a poem about sexual abuse in which the poet described a fantasy of killing the abuser. “The students themselves were divided about whether the poem should be published, and it’s fair to say they all wanted more voice in what was to be published, so we employed the group problem-solving process to come up with a solution,” said Kate Hawley, program manager for Stopover Services of Newport. The process resulted in several options satisfactory to the group, including protecting the program’s right to choose works for publication while informing students of other publishing opportunities. The arts are a natural forum for teaching, modeling, and using conflict resolution (CR) processes. CR skills can provide tools for creating more peaceable environments within arts programs and within families, schools, and communities. As with the arts, CR education is approached experientially. One of the most powerful protective factors for youth is a caring, supportive relationship with an adult. Trustful relationships with artists offer youth opportunities to enliven hopes and dreams through art and to communicate their fears, problems, and frustrations. CR processes help complex and challenging youth-adult relationships to succeed.
