Description

Trouble at the Watering Hole: The Adventures of Emo and Chickie

FREE

Thursday, November 26:30 PM

Breck Suite, Wright Hall

Author, Joshua N. Weiss PhD, Director, MS in Leadership and Negotiation, Bay Path University

Dr. Joshua Weiss and his co-author, Mr. Gregg Relyea Esq., published a book rich in both story and subtle content to help children 6 to 10 years old to find their way out of difficult problems through creative thinking and problem solving. Using tried and tested techniques, Weiss and Relyea, in Trouble at the Watering Hole: The Adventures of Emo and Chickie, weave together a story that will keep children engaged, while helping their parents and teachers learn to exhibit fundamental skills and approaches to negotiation and dealing with conflict.

The forest animals have a problem—the watering hole isn't big enough. They have all the usual reasons for getting more water—who is biggest, who is strongest, and who is cleverest. But the animals are getting nowhere. Worse yet, they are fighting with each other, which won't solve anything.

In Trouble at the Watering Hole, Emo, a baby bear cub, and his best friend, a colorful bird named "Chickie," know there must be a way to stop the fighting. Together with the forest animals, Emo and Chickie explore ways to work things out that are positive and constructive. They learn skills together and use them to work through the problem—skills that can be used to resolve everyday problems without resorting to fighting. Skills that everyone can learn.

Trouble at the Watering Hole is a breakthrough book that focuses on the skills of conflict resolution. The "how" of working things out. This fun and educational book builds a foundation for kids to learn ways to constructively resolve problems and to build strong skills that can be used to resolve conflict for the rest of their lives.

“It would be a better world if every child had the chance to learn early in life about ways to resolve conflict through cooperation. In this wonderfully simple and instructive tale for children, accompanied by a practical teacher’s guide packed with tips and exercises, Gregg Relyea and Josh Weiss make this dream possible.”

—From William Ury: Co-author of Getting to Yes and author of The Third Side

Children are encouraged to attend as part of the fun of this book is acting the roles of the animals in the story.
