This work consists of a didactic compilation of 10 stories, which include fables, folktales, and one true story. These stories have been adapted into lessons and they focus mainly on the themes of conflict transformation and conflict resolution. Through a series of steps, structured by activities, learners will be able to experience working with several diverse scenarios of conflict. Part of these activities will require learners to relate and apply the issues in the stories both to themselves and to pertinent contexts of reality. Thus, this material constitutes a practical and experiential guide to the development and application of skills on promoting and implementing alternative ways to address conflict resolution. Its main objective is to prepare and equip learners and instructors alike to take an active part and be instruments in the task of furthering the so desperate and needed efforts towards peace.
