    This article explores the development of The SALT Programme: Creative Solutions to Conflict, which is a National School programme linked to the SPHE curriculum. The first pilot project was undertaken in 2005 in Donabate Portrane Educate Together. The research from this pilot programme formed the basis for my Master’s Thesis, which looked at whether this type of education was effective in changing the views and behaviours of children in resolving conflict. The outcomes were seen as positive and so the programme was published. Since then, the programme has been implemented widely in schools with teachers showing considerable interest in being trained in the SALT Process. This has precipitated the development of a full teacher training programme for teachers, delivered through Drumcondra Education Centre and further adult education training, including a HETAC Level 7 mediation training.
