This program series originated from a two year pilot program with the San Diego School District. The response from teachers, counselors, and students has been excellent.
Ending the Cycle of Violence is a groundbreaking series that provides a bold new approach to Violence Prevention, and introduces youth to the essential life skills of:
- Understanding Consequences
- Developing Empathy
- Practicing Forgiveness
- Making Non-Violent Choices
The series is based on the nationally recognized community-based prevention programs developed by TKF, an educational foundation started in memory of Tariq Khamisa, a 20-year-old college student who was shot and killed by 14-year-old Tony Hicks in San Diego in 1995.
The US Office Of Juvenile Justice And Delinquency Prevention Model Programs Guide reports violence prevention curricula is a powerful way to promote cognitive and social development for at-risk youth.
Ending the Cycle of Violence curriculum has been implemented by San Diego County Juvenile Detention Facilities and area schools for specific use with at-risk youth.
Ending the Cycle of Violence has also been selected as a recommended middle school health curriculum by the Dallas Independent School District.
The program is comprised of 6 DVDs:
- From Murder to Forgiveness - 35:00
- Violence is Real and Hurts Everyone - 23:00
- Everyone Deserves to be Loved and Treated Well - 16:30
- Actions Have Consequences - 17:30
- Choosing to Forgive Instead of Seeking Revenge - 24:30
- Making the Non-Violent Choice - 20:30
Using examples from Tariq and Tony's story as well as the stories of other youth and young role models, ENDING THE CYCLE OF VIOLENCE vividly communicates the contrasting realities of violence and non-violence, revenge and forgiveness. The videos also contain engaging animated sequences depicting some of the latest research on brain chemistry and how choices can affect brain development with commentary by juvenile forensic psychologist, Dr. Jeffrey Rowe.

"Skillfully conceptualized and powerfully executed, the Ending the Cycle of Violence program is an exceptional resource for any youth program. Comprehensive in scope, this compelling intervention addresses the cycle of violence from its root causes to the liberating and healing process of forgiveness."

"The 'Ending the Cycle of Violence' series offers compassionate and concrete tools to heal and transform the lives of children who experience or express violence. Working through the Counseling Division of the Dallas Independent School District, I have witnessed the immediate shifts in attitudes in some of the students after the first facilitation in their school. This series offers powerful opportunities to mentor youth leaders instead of gang members and is essential in every school district."
~ Veronica Valles, RSCP, Community Service Director, Center for Spiritual Living, Dallas
