Twenty-eight years ago Elyse Jacobs, who has an MFA and a certificate in Art Therapy, developed a program of conflict resolution for young children. The program evolved and later became known as Tools of Peace.
Currently, the program is established at two sites in San Francisco. The children learn to develop emotional and social intelligence through puppetry and the expressive arts. Elyse continues to find joy through hands-on teaching, mentoring and international consulting.
