LASA 2 Reducing Intergroup Conflict

Research suggests a number of strategies to reduce  intergroup conflict. To further explore these strategies, in addition to  readings in your text, read the following article paying particular  attention to pages 588 to 593. Hewstone, M., Rubin, M., & Willis, H.  (2002). Intergroup bias. Annual Review of Psychology, 53, 575-604.

You are a counselor in a detention center for delinquent  adolescent boys. Your current project is to devise a way to reduce  inter group conflict that has been escalating between the boys at the  center, many of whom were active in local gangs.

  • Discuss the different strategies to reduce inter group conflict found in your text and the Hewstone article.
  • Looking back at the course discuss 2 to 3 additional concepts that  could be applied in helping a person overcome these negative attitudes  and behaviors.
  • Keeping these strategies and concepts in mind, what activities  and/or programs can you create that will help these boys overcome this  conflict and learn to work together, respect each other, and come to see  each other’s differences as valuable. Briefly summarize each  program/strategy in 2 to 3 sentences each in preparation for part 2 of  this project.

Answer the above points in a 3- to 4-page paper. Your paper should be  double-spaced, typed in 12-point Times New Roman font with normal  one-inch margins, written in APA style, and free of typographical and  grammatical errors. It should include a title page with a running head,  an abstract, and a reference page.

Part 2:

Create a 4- to 8-slide PowerPoint presentation (not including title  and reference slides) to present to the board of directors for the  detention center that will cover the following:

  • A detailed outline of each of the 3 to 4 programs/strategies that you would like to put into place at the center.
  • Discuss for each program/strategy why you believe it will be effective within the context of your detention center.
