Nancy D. Erbe (California State University, Dominguez Hills, USA) and Swaranjit Singh (Independent Researcher, USA)
Copyright: © 2021 |Pages: 14
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-4072-5.ch011
The authors have spent careers preventing and transforming violence, as a lawyer for public schools, treatment leader for repeat violent juvenile offenders, victim offender mediator, and an army colonel. Here they share the field-tested insights they have gained over a combined 50 plus years of service. They also elaborate Gandhi's nonviolence (actual and envisioned) so that readers will start to fully appreciate what is required for sustainable nonviolence. He offered several practices, tools, and ideas that have significant potential to help the contemporary world embrace nonviolence as a complex growth-filled way of living, one that promises to help the human race sustain and enrich their civilization(s). This updated chapter will include reflections about preventing and reducing violence with a particular focus on the increased and tragic violence in the United States under the Trump administration.
