Social Skills Taught in Classrooms?

Are any of you aware of K12 programs in your area where children learn social skills in the classroom (i.e., interpersonal skills, coping, relationships, intimacy)? How is that working out? Some kids might not get this stuff from their families, so maybe if social skills were taught in school, the kids can introduce what they are learning to their own parents and siblings. They say when one person makes changes in their communications, it introduces change in others.

Can healthy communications lessen the conflict within us, promoting healthy interpersonal relations? If only we can reduce domestic violence and violence in schools… What do you think?
