Target Audience

This workshop is designed for Pre-K - 8 grade teachers and administrators.


Children have a capacity for both kindness and cruelty. How can we maximize their potential for kindness and other prosocial behaviors and create a classroom culture of kindness and respect that inhibits negative behavior? Drawing on more than four decades of experience working with teachers and parents, Dr. Tom Lickona will share fascinating findings from recent research on moral development and then describe practical classroom strategies—including conflict resolution, circle meetings, cooperative learning, and a character-based approach to discipline—for helping preK-8 students grow in goodness. The event will include opportunities throughout the day for small-group discussion of how to adapt these ideas to your context, as well as sharing of your best practices.



Thomas Lickona, a developmental psychologist and professor emeritus in the School of Education at the State University of New York at Cortland. He founded and continues to direct the Center for the 4th and 5th Rs (Respect and Responsibility).

His nine books on character development include Raising Good ChildrenEducating for Character: How Our Schools Can Teach Respect and ResponsibilityCharacter MattersSex, Love & You, a book for teens (written with his wife Judith and William Boudreau, M.D.); and most recently, How to Raise Kind Kids: And Get Respect, Gratitude, and a Happier Family in the Bargain (Penguin, April 2018).

His Center’s work was the subject of a New York Times Magazine cover story, “Teaching Johnny to Be Good,” and is currently collaborating with England’s University of Leeds on the Narnian Virtues project, using C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia to foster virtue development in middle school students through a partnership with parents.

Tom writes a blog for Psychology Today called “Raising Kind Kids.” He and his wife live in Cortland, New York, and have two grown sons and 15 grandchildren.
