Too Good for Violence focuses on risk factors that can be positively affected in the classroom: poor social skills, peer rejection, and inappropriate social behaviors. It enhances protective factors by providing opportunities for pro-social involvement; establishing positive norms, including healthy beliefs and clear standards; promoting bonding to pro-social peers; and increasing personal and social skills which research has associated with positive behaviors and student success.
