This edition of the classic, Reclaiming Youth at Risk, draws on early youth-work pioneers, Native tribal wisdom, and youth development research and outlines the four essential elements every child needs in order to flourish and thrive: belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity. The book includes innovative approaches for building relationships with youth, fostering their self-esteem, and instilling positive values in classroom, residential treatment, counseling, and correctional settings. The Circle of Courage model has been adopted by hundreds of schools and programs in the U.S., Canada, and around the world. A “must-read” for everyone who works with youth. Foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. [Solution Tree]
