This paper targets educators who wish to grapple with the problem of violence and aggression in the classroom. Its focus is geared to helping them to acquire basic skills and knowledge necessary to design and implement effective instructional and classroom management practices which will address the needs of the student in an holistic manner, socially, morally and academically. The pro-social aspects of the students' training must be the subject of considerable attention and the humanistic aspect must be meaningfully dealt with.
